NDIS Rally Newcastle – Make the NDIS the best it can be!

Once fully rolled-out, the National Disability Insurance Scheme will support around a half-million participants. To meet that need, the disability services workforce will double in size by 2020. Ensuring a quality, professional and sustainable workforce is essential to achieving the goal of delivering real choice and control.
We all know now that:
- the pricing units don’t reflect the true cost of delivering high quality person centred services;
- we need greater focus on training and ongoing worker development;
- a classification structure which recognises the skills required to work with high support needs clients needs to be developed;
- We want secure jobs with predictable hours for worker security and continuity of support for people with disability.
NOW IT’S TIME FOR ACTION.
Join ASU members to take to the streets of Newcastle and send a message to Canberra that we deserve the #bestNDIS.
