YDAS completed a submission in response to the National Disability Insurance Scheme Bill 2012. In this submission YDAS represents the interests of young people with disabilities. Young people want the NDIS to:

  • fund supports for the lifespan of the participant
  • be adaptable to life transitions
  • use assessments that are fair, respectful and easily reviewable.

It is key that the NDIS is free of means or asset testing. Supports should be provided across all areas of life in order to allow for full participation in the community.
