Abstract

This chapter considers the impact of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) on the provision of disability services for families and children with disabilities through non-for-profit organisations (NFPO’s). Findings of a large research study confirmed funding difficulties with the provision of services by NFPO’s under previous government policies. The impact of NDIS on families of children with disabilities who have three vulnerabilities i.e. they are Indigenous, they live in rural and remote areas and they are unaccustomed to accessing and utilising ‘dominant culture’ services, are a major area of concern. Two recent research studies are referred to in making recommendations for the conduct of research that examines service provision in Indigenous communities.
