Add your voice to call on the Turnbull Government to lift the NDIS staffing cap.
The NDIS is one of the largest social reforms in Australian history. It has the potential to transform the lives of Disabled Australians, their families and carers.
The Greens have always supported the NDIS but we also hear everyday from participants who are experiencing unacceptable challenges accessing the scheme and the services and supports they need to live a good life. While the causes of these problems are complex they too often share one thing in common: there are simply not enough people employed by the agency to do the work that is needed.
This shortage is the result of a staffing cap of just 3,000 employees initially implemented by Labor and now enforced by Turnbull's Liberal Government. This is despite the Productivity Commission originally recommending that 10,000 agency staff would be needed. It stops the NDIS dealing with the urgent challenges which must be addressed and it must be lifted.
Add your voice to our campaign now for a better staffed NDIS for All of Us.
