Turnbull Government delivers on the NDIS

Tonight the Turnbull Government delivered on its promise to fully fund the NDIS. The 2018/19 budget provides for this and there is also funding allowed in the forward estimates. “This is a pleasing result, and tonight people with disability, their families and supporters can feel relieved that the scheme, which we all fought so hard to get, is fully funded for the coming financial year,” said Ross Joyce, CEO of the Australian Federation of Disability Organisations (AFDO).
