ACCAN supports in principle the Commission’s finding that the current disability support system in Australia is fractured and in need of transformation.


ACCAN supports the Commission’s recommendation that the Australian Government initiate a National Disability Insurance Agency to administer the proposed National Disability Insurance Scheme. However, we reiterate our recommendations made in our initial submission that the information and communication technology equipment and services needs of Australian consumers living with disability be included in the range of supports offered through this new scheme.
