News article

The high level design of the new disability support system is being tested, reviewed and refined by the co-design group charged with creating it.

The group, which includes disabled people, those with disabled family members and representatives from the disability sector, as well as government officials, is holding a series of workshops until mid-June to transform the disability support system.

There has been real progress made on the more than 20 elements which will make up the new system but there is more work to do on some, including capacity and capability building, support networks, funding allocations and service delivery teams.

The aim of a transformed system is to provide disabled people and their families more choice and control over their lives and their supports.

You can find out more about the workshop on the Enabling Good Lives website.
