Hundreds rally to Make NDIS Work

April 1, 2019

Hundreds of supporters attended rallies in Wollongong and Nowra on Friday 3 May as part of the NDIS Day of Action. The way the NDIS is being delivered means it’s not yet working for everyone. Participants face complex processes, many people aren’t getting the support they need or access to secure, supported employment opportunities. Disability service providers are calling for better NDIS planning, less red tape, real sector safeguards and secure supported employment. The Illawarra Disability Alliance coordinated the rallies locally, and were proud to announce that the Wollongong rally was the largest in Australia. Attendees voted unanimously to support the resolution.
