Access to the NDIS for people who have been involved in the justice system

Earlier this year there was some discussion in the media about the NDIS for people with disability who have been involved in the criminal justice system.

We are very concerned about the messages in these conversations and the suggestions that people who have been incarcerated or have had other contact with the justice system do not ‘deserve’ the NDIS.

We wrote to NDIS Minister Bill Shorten in May about our concerns.

We have also signed on to a joint letter from other disability advocacy and community organisations, academics and stakeholders.
