Remember Independent Assessments and how they are off the table (for now anyhow) .. well, one of the outcomes of the fight the community took to the Government regarding Independent Assessments was a commitment by the Government to develop a way of how the NDIA will engage with the disability community.
So after much consultation with a range of stakeholders (including Disabled Peoples’ Organisations), the NDIA has now released the NDIA Engagement framework. It’s all about how the NDIA will from now on go about engaging with the community, defining problems and working out how to change.
It’s a pretty high level document and the proof will be in the pudding (watch out on what happens about “independent assessments- or whatever the new version will be called). But it does read as if more people will get a chance to say how to change the NDIA to make it better for everyone.
Let’s all watch this space!
