"I welcome the announcement of $1 billion in funding for stage one of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), in tonight’s federal budget. "
"The government will also speed up the introduction of launch sites, giving 10,000 people with a disability an opportunity to trial the planned new system from June next year.
"This commitment shows the commonwealth is serious about addressing the fragmented and broken system of disability support in this nation.
"Now the money is on the table, it’s time to get moving.
"There are people in emergency and crisis right now. We owe it to them to sort out any remaining issues between the federal government and state governments, to start these launch sites and to begin to understand how to implement the best disability support system in the world.
"Australians with a disability are waiting to see a reform that promises equity under one national system, regardless of where they live or how their disability was acquired.
"Every state and territory must also begin intensive work to prepare for the sweeping change from current state systems to a National Disability Insurance Scheme.
"States which fail to be ready for the NDIS on time will be disadvantaging those Australians who least deserve it, and this must be avoided at all costs."
