In response to the Disability Inclusion Regulation review, a comprehensive submission has been submitted. The submission focuses on the NSW Disability Inclusion Act 2014 (the Act), which serves as a replacement for the NSW Disability Services Act 1993.
The NSW Government to making communities more inclusive and accessible for people with disability now and into the future. These commitments will continue even when the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is operating across NSW. It also regulates specialist disability supports and services to people with disability in NSW and introducing better safeguards for these services until the change over to the NDIS.
In this submission, People with Disability Australia (PWDA) recognises the Regulation as a valuable instrument to support nimble responses to emerging trends and changing needs of people with disability in NSW under the Disability Inclusion Act 2014 (the Act). We also support the proposal of NSW Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ) to remake the Existing Regulation..
