Endeavour Foundation CEO Andrew Donne has welcomed news today that the Commonwealth Government has identified unexpected revenue growth that will be used to fund the NDIS.
“We are pleased to see that funding for the NDIS remains a priority, and hope to see this addressed in the upcoming budget,” Mr Donne said.
“However, both the federal Government and the Opposition must commit to a long-term, secure funding stream for the NDIS, to spare Australians with a disability unnecessary stress and fear.
“Until a permanent funding source has been identified and set aside from general revenue and expenditure, people with a disability and carers will remain anxious about the future of the NDIS,” Mr Donne said.
“We all remember one of Australia’s proudest moments when the NDIS legislation was unanimously passed, and our high hopes for a better future for people with a disability.
“Yet today we find the job is still not finished. We call on all Members of Parliament and the Senate, to put aside political point-scoring and work together to establish a secure and permanent source of NDIS funding.
“Until this has been delivered, people with a disability and carers will continue to fear that the future of the NDIS is only going to remain safe while economic times are good.
“People with a disability need a strong and secure NDIS, so they have confidence to look beyond immediate challenges, knowing support will be there to create a life of their own choosing in the long term.
“People with a disability and carers need and deserve the opportunity to plan their lives, study and train for roles in the workforce, live independent lives, begin families, establish a home and fulfil their dreams just like anyone else.
“I ask the Commonwealth Government to establish permanent measures to fund the NDIS in the budget, and ensure the promise of the NDIS will be delivered both now and into the future,” Mr Donne concluded.
