National Disability Insurance Scheme Evaluation

Team: Prof. Patricia O’ Brien, Dr. Meaghan Edwards, Friederike Gadow and Dr. Samuel Arnold

CDS and National Institute for Labour Studies (NILS), Flinders University, have been involved in a large scale, two-year evaluation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) as it rolls out across the country. As the NSW State Experts CDS have been engaged to carry out community engagement activities and interviews with participants and their carers.

The second year of data collection is underway with the findings due for release in 2017.

CDS, NILS, and other state experts from across the country, work on building a cohesive representation of the experiences of participants and stakeholders in the NDIS trial sites.
