Survey introduction

As part of the Priorities Project, DANA is collecting community feedback on the recommendations made in the Disability Royal Commission and/or the NDIS Review. We want to hear from you about the proposed reforms and how to begin making reform happen.
This survey has 27 questions and should take about 15 minutes to complete. We will use the information from this survey in our report on the Priorities Project and may also use quotes from the survey in the final report.
We cannot ask about every recommendation the Disability Royal Commission and the NDIS Review have made in this survey. There is space at the end of the survey for you to share feedback on other topics.
DANA will keep your responses private and does not ask for any identifying information (other than optional postcode). Please do not use identifying information (like names or addresses) in your response.
 
If you have any questions you can email Lana Starr, project officer, at alana.starr@dana.org.au.

Foundational supports

The NDIS Review talks about the introduction of foundational supports. These supports will exist outside the NDIS and support all people with disability, with targeted supports available for people with disability who are not eligible for the NDIS.
