NDIS Market in Queensland

The QPC is currently completing an inquiry into the operation of the NDIS market in Queensland.

 

Sophie and Chris raised concern about the lack of accountability of many NDIS service providers in the market. They spoke about the human rights implications of the suggested reforms to the rules regulating Restrictive Practices. They also highlighted the lack of support available to prisoners with disability, who are essentially being left out of the NDIS.

 

In conjunction with the presentation by Sophie and Chris, QAI made a written submission to the QPC, which you can read in full at the links below.
