What will happen to the feedback you provide?

Periodically the MACD, with the support of an independent consultant, will collate and theme the information gathered in this process to provide advice for the Minister’s consideration.

It is also acknowledged that during the comparative NDIS trials in WA the Disability Services Commission, the National Disability Insurance Agency and other organisations have consulted with the community and disability service organisations on different aspects of the trials. This has provided valuable information, which together with your input, will help to shape the NDIS in WA.
