Every Australian Counts

DisabilityCare, the agency that will run the National Disability insurance Scheme (NDIS) launched a new website.

We want to know what you think? What’s your thoughts on the website? On the branding? On the way the NDIS is being presented by the government?

This week Senator Mitch Fifield shadow Minister for Disability reform said: “the name should be reconsidered before the advertising starts.

Senator Fifield said that the name was “close to being hated” by people with disabilities. There is an element that it’s patronising, that’s how it’s seen by many people with disabilities,”

“People with disabilities want to be empowered, want to be independent, want to be in charge and in control. The word “Care” in the title, many people with disabilities have told me, is at odds with that.”

What’s your thoughts?
