National Disability Insurance Agency
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funding to support eligible people with disability to gain more time with family and friends, develop greater independence, access new skills, find employment, volunteer in their community, and improve their quality of life.
The NDIS currently helps more than 550,000 Australians with disability to access the services and support they need.
Since 2017, the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) has engaged AHA to conduct the Long Form Outcomes Framework (LFOF) survey. The survey measures how NDIS participants and their families and carers are progressing in different areas of their lives, including:
This information helps the NDIA to understand what types of support lead to good outcomes, and to improve the delivery of the NDIS. The NDIA also uses the data to benchmark the experiences of participants against the experiences of people without disability in Australia and other countries.
AHA will contact NDIS participants and their families between September and December 2023 to invite them to take part in the survey.
More information about the NDIS is available at www.ndis.gov.au.
AHA's survey data assists the NDIA to identify the types of support that lead to good outcomes for participants, and to improve the Scheme.
