A report detailing survey and forum feedback about peoples’ experiences of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Western Australia.
November 2015

Western Australia (WA) is in the unique position of having two models of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) being trialed in the State. In July 2014 the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) began a two year NDIS trial site in the Perth Hills. At the same time Disability Service Commission (DSC) began a trial of My Way NDIS in the Lower South West. A further My Way NDIS trial site began in July 2015 in Cockburn and Kwinana.

Behind Closed Doors – Prevention of violence, abuse and neglect against Western Australians with disabilities

The lives of people with disability are often secret lives. We are routinely segregated and isolated from our non-disabled peers – we live, work and play in places which are not often frequented by those without disability.  Often, we are lonely. If we do not have families, paid staff are sometimes the only people in our lives. We are shut out by barriers to participation in Australian life, and shut in when we are hidden in institutional settings.
