National disability insurance scheme

Ministerial statement

MS BURCH (Brindabella—Minister for Education and Training, Minister for Disability, Children and Young People, Minister for the Arts, Minister for Women, Minister for Multicultural Affairs and Minister for Racing and Gaming) (10.02), by leave: I present the following paper:

National Disability Insurance Scheme—Ministerial statement, 7 May 2013.

I move:

That the Assembly takes note of the paper.

I would now take the opportunity to make a statement to the Assembly and provide an update on the national disability insurance scheme.

The NDIS is the most significant social reform since the introduction of Medicare. It will be a major and highly complex reform to the way in which disability care and support are funded. It will have far-reaching effects throughout the disability services sector as the people with disability are placed at the centre of decisions about their care. The NDIS puts the needs of people with a disability at the centre. It smooths out the inequities that people with a disability now experience, inequities based on how they acquired their disability or where they live. The NDIS will provide certainty that people with a disability will receive the care and support that they need over their lifetime.
