Creating a Voice for the Disability Sector

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has done a spectacular job in giving participants more power over how they want to be treated, by giving them more control of their funds. Despite their best efforts, there is still much complexity and confusion, not just from the participants, but from providers being compliant while running their businesses effectively.

The National Disability Leadership Organisation (NDLO) has been created to support the NDIS with their initiative to empower participants, by acting as a vehicle to accelerate the rate of positive change in the sector. We’ll achieve this by:

  • Providing services to people with a physical, neurological or psychosocial disability who require direct support services to find and access service options to support the full utilisation of funding available to them through the National Disability Insurance Scheme
  • Arranging opportunities and events for people with disabilities to interact with other people and have the same life experiences as people who do not have a physical or mental disability through easing the challenges of service access
  • Educating the public on the importance of the value in the inclusion and recognition of all people in Australian to have choice and control in their lives
  • Advocating for people with disabilities by promoting changes in the law and policy on how Australians living with disabilities receive services, funding and support; and
  • Providing support to community benefit organisations by raising funds through various events and initiatives and providing a range of in kind and financial assistance opportunities to not for profit projects through Australia

NDLO also aims to protect and promote the human rights of people living with a disability by:

  • Raising public awareness and promoting public debate to ensure the Australian government complies with its obligations arising from the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities
  • Facilitating public forums and debate on how disability services should be delivered and
  • Advocating for improvement, innovation and policy reform by facilitating events and opportunities for people with a disability and service providers to provide formal responses to key stakeholders leading legislative change.

Together with it’s board, advisory panel experts and steering committee leaders, the NDLO will continually address the most pressing questions and challenges that participants, providers and carers are up against. Through its work, the NDLO will work with NDIS to bring about needed changes in the sector to ensure frustrations and bottlenecks are relieved one at a time.

The ultimate goal of the NDLO is to not just turn Australia into the world leader of disability best practices, but for every Aussie to be proud of the disability sector, as we continually strive for the highest service standards.
