The Alliance has a strong interest in the work of the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) and agrees that the economic and social reform that will result from its work will benefit all Australians - including those living with a disability in country areas. The Alliance has made a brief submission in a letter commenting on the NDIA’s draft Strategic Plan 2013-16. In rural and remote areas NDIS will become part of integrated care for health, disability, ageing, rehabilitation and general wellbeing. It is the Alliance’s view that the goals and strategies of the final Strategic Plan should take account of special circumstances of rural Australia including workforce issues and the challenges of transport and personal mobility. The NDIA's Strategic Plan might also refer to the transition from the current system to full implementation of the NDIS.
