NDIS Minister Linda Reynolds must throw out the ridiculous external marketing contract the National Disability Insurance Agency has outsourced instead of helping people with a disability live better lives.
Scandal after scandal is revealed about the mismanagement of the NDIS and now we can see the Morrison Government’s agency running the Scheme is using taxpayers’ money to create more spin.
This would be a joke were it not true. People with disability don’t need a `coloured journey line’ or other taxpayer-funded marketing drivel.
People with disabilities want more wheelchairs, more autism therapy, more home modifications, not more spin.
If Minister Reynolds was serious about a ‘Better NDIS’ she should deliver it: cancel mandatory assessments and call off her razor gang.
The leaked marketing plan also shows NDIA staff are struggling with proposed changes to cut the scheme and how they are going to be able to support people with a disability.
This Government is turning its back on the people who rely on this important scheme and instead seems hell-bent on cutting costs.
There is a heavy price to pay for the people who the NDIS lets down when the Government of the day only sees it as a vehicle to save a dollar.
Minister Reynolds must call off the NDIS attack dogs and cancel this latest marketing fiasco.
