New Central Regional TAFE Director meets GIFSA
NDIS Minister accepts GIFSA's invitation
The Minister for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), Hon. Stuart Robert, accepted GIFSA's invitation to visit the region and meet with clients, staff and directors for a detailed briefing on the challenges and opportunities for the Scheme within the context of this vast 771,000 km2 region.
The Wednesday 07 August 2019 meeting was historic for two reasons 1) this was the first visit by the Minister in the new portfolio as Minister for the NDIS and 2) he brought with him the head of the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA); the first time the NDIA head has visited.
GIFSA has been consistent in advocating the need for Government to fix the NDIS, and we are confident that Minister Robert is the right man for the job. We look forward to changes that will be in the best interests of the participants (people with disability), providers, the sector and our communities.
Our appreciation to Rick Wilson MP for making the visit happen.Back to Articles
