Seselja and Wall to Visit Hartley Lifecare for NDIS Trial Launch


Zed Seselja, Liberal Senator for the ACT, and Andrew Wall MLA, Shadow Minister for Disability will join Hartley Lifecare at an afternoon tea to mark the launch of the National Disability Scheme (NDIS) trial here in the ACT.

 

“I’m looking forward to joining Hartley Lifecare’s clients, their families and the staff at an afternoon tea today for the opportunity to hear their stories in their words on this milestone occasion,” Senator Seselja said today.

“The trial in the ACT is crucial to the National Disability Insurance Agency’s ability to ensure the scheme is built on strong foundations and that key lessons from the trials are taken on board.

“The priority of the Coalition Government is to ensure the scheme is as effective and efficient as it can be to ensure that support goes to those who need it,” stated Senator Seselja.

Shadow Minister for Disability in the ACT said today that Canberrans have waited in anticipation for this day for quite some time; it is exciting that the ACT is the first jurisdiction to transition all people with a disability, not just sections of the community.

“The ACT is well placed to learn the lessons of NDIS trials already underway across the country and I look forward to continuing to work actively with individuals and local service providers as we enter into this exciting phase of disability service delivery,” Mr Wall concluded.
