The NDIS Long Form Outcomes Framework (LFOF) captures key data on participant outcomes, which helps to improve the scheme.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is Australia’s national disability support scheme – designed to support Australians with a disability, their families and carers.
NDIS participants each receive an individualised support package which can be used to purchase goods and services – to support social and economic participation and help individuals with a disability meet their goals.
There are around 4.3 million Australians who have a disability. Within the next five years, the NDIS will provide an estimated 500,000 Australians who have a permanent and significant disability with funding for supports and services. For many people, it will be the first time they receive the disability support they need.
For the past five consecutive years, AHA has been engaged by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to conduct telephone surveys of NDIS participants and their families.
The survey is the Long Form Outcomes Framework (LFOF) – designed to capture the outcomes of NDIS participants across several domains, including:
The survey results assist the NDIA to identify the types of supports that lead to good outcomes for participants and to improve the Scheme.
Further information about the NDIS is available at www.ndis.gov.au.
