According to the last NDIS Quarterly Reports Only 52% of NDIS Plan Budgets are actually spent in South Australia, and the number isn’t much higher interstate!
I have a few theories about why, including lack of support coordination, peer groups and LAC assistance, and a huge lack of participant training, support and advice on using the funds. That’s one of my “missions” if you like – to use this page to help people with disability and their nominees make the most of their funding to live good lives.
Last month, more than 120,000 people across Australia saw posts on The Growing Space. Thanks to you all for spreading the word and sharing the joy. 🙂
New NDIS Quarterly Reports will come out in just a few days. The info in these reports is fascinating and well worth a look, with much of the data presented in graphs, so you don’t have to be a whizz at numbers to understand.
Here’s the blurb from the NDIS website:
“Quarterly reports Each quarter the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) prepares a report on its operations for the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Disability Reform Council in accordance with section 174 of the National Disability Insurance Scheme Act 2013. These reports are known as quarterly reports.
The quarterly reports provide the COAG Disability Reform Council with information (including statistics) about participants in each jurisdiction and the funding or provision of supports by the NDIA in each jurisdiction. The NDIA provides these reports to COAG at the of the month following the end of each quarter by 31 January, 30 April, 31 July and 31 October”
