Carers Australia welcomes the opportunity to provide feedback on the Independent Review of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS Review) Proposal Paper NDIS Participant Safeguarding (the ‘Paper’). Carers Australia is committed to the rights of people with disability and seeks to work with the NDIS Review to ensure that NDIS participants are safe, empowered and aware of their rights.

It is our role as Carers Australia to provide information to the NDIS Review from a carer1 lens, and recognising that as our focus, we are encouraged to see the Paper identifying that building strong natural safeguards is important.
