The peak body for Australian disability support organisations has released a report criticising the performance National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) saying the program is failing to take the expertise of support providers into account and wants a greater role in the development on the scheme.

National Disability Services (NDS) has made 23 recommendations for reform, including the need for participants to give feedback on their care plans.

But advocates for disabled people such as Queensland Advocacy Incorporated say the report doesn’t go far enough and more should be done to allow disabled people to design their own care plans.
