National Disability Insurance Agency
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a trailblazing national initiative 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 which support social and economic participation and help individuals with a disability meet their goals.
The NDIS is being rolled out across the country and it is expected that by 2019 around 460,000 Australians will be enrolled.
AHA was engaged by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to conduct 8,190 telephone surveys of NDIS participants and/or their families within a three-month period.
The Long Form Outcomes Framework (LFOF) survey was designed to capture the outcomes of NDIS participants across several domains, including health, relationships, employment and community participation. This was the second year AHA performed this work for the NDIA.
The NDIA will use the survey results to help identify the types of supports that lead to good outcomes for participants and to improve the NDIS.
Further information about the NDIS is available at www.ndis.gov.au.
