Following the clear message from the disability community rejecting Independent Assessments, the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) has been exploring alternative approaches to ensure people and families have more control over NDIS application and planning processes.
One element of this is IGAP – or Information Gathering for Access and Planning. This is about the how people and families provide information to the NDIA when applying to the NDIS or for planning processes.
Inclusion Australia has been engaged to run workshops in August with people with an intellectual disability and families to better understand people’s experiences of these processes.
There is a choice of three online workshops for up to 6 people with disabilities.
- Tuesday 16 August (2 – 4pm AEST)
- Thursday 18 August (11am – 1pm AEST)
- Monday 22 August (2 – 4pm AEST)
There will also be a separate evening workshop for up to 8 family members:
- Wednesday 24 August (7pm to 9pm AEST).
All attendees will be paid $50 per hour for taking part in the workshops.
To find out more or to register for a workshop please contact Jamie Bannister via [email protected].

For anyone unable to attend, the NDIA also has an online survey seeking feedback on this process: IGAP_Project_CS (ndia.gov.au)
