6th Annual National Disability Summit 2015

  • Melbourne, Australia
  • March 18-19, 2015
  • Venue: Sheraton Hotel

Disability reform is an extremely high-profile national issue with the NDIS expanding from its initial trial sites to additional sites in Western Australia, the Northern Territory and the ACT. Now in it's sixth year, the National Disability Summit will offer updates and discussion around the trial sites to review how the rollouts are faring. In addition, it will bring together policy makers, researchers, consumers and advocacy groups to assess the transitional considerations for service providers and access issues for specific minority population groups.

Key themes for discussion include:

  • The NDIS a year on: Successes, leanings and forthcoming challenges
  • Remaining Competitive in a Growing Market: Understanding Key Cost Components for Effective Transition
  • Strategizing and Marketing your Business under the New Scheme
  • Supporting Clients with Insight and Decision-Making Capacity
  • Strengthening Family & Carer Support
  • Integrating Mental Health into Disability reform: Getting the Architecture Right
  • Overcoming Barriers to Meaningful Participation for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with Disabilities
