National Disability Insurance Scheme

Our good friends Di and Sean have been actively campaigning for the NDIS for some time now and, as this report shows, they’re making significant progress. I’m incredibly proud of them and pleased about what they’ve achieved – something that’s critically important for any family (and there are so many) that is affected.  Congratulations to them, and to their son (who got to sing to the PM), and I can’t wait to see the NDIS rollout.
