As part of the NDIS Evaluation we want to find out if the NDIS is making a difference to older people with disability. The main aim of the Older People Study is to understand what supports NDIS participants are getting compared to older people with disability who are not part of the NDIS.
We would like to speak with a small number of:
The interviews will last for about 60 minutes. They will be conducted at a time and place that are convenient to you.

The NDIS Survey and the NDIS Survey for Families and Carers is now underway. Registration packs are currently being sent out to potential participants.
The registration pack includes information about the survey and the ways that the survey can be completed. The survey is available in hardcopy booklet, online or can be done by telephone interview. Parts of the survey are also available in Easy English and these can be completed in hard copy form, online or by telephone too.
Both NDIS participants and people with disability who are not yet part of the NDIS; and their families and carers have been invited to take part in this important survey.
We are asking people in the NDIS about their experiences of disability supports and the impact that the NDIS is having on their lives. We also want to know about the experiences of people who are not in the NDIS now but may be in the future. This will help us build a picture about the introduction of the NDIS to make sure that it is implemented across Australia in the best way possible. Hearing what the people who are most affected have to say will help to guide the future development of the NDIS. Roy Morgan Research is undertaking the survey.
You can find out more about the NDIS Survey from the following links. Information is in Standard English and in Easy English.

Have you received a survey? We need you to tell us how you see the sector changing..
The evaluation of the trial of the NDIS includes several surveys of the disability sector. We are surveying a sample of disability support organisations and their workers, along with a sample of self-employed providers both inside and outside of the current NDIS trial locations.
We are interested in understanding how disability services may be changing throughout Australia. You can take part even if your organisation does not have NDIS clients.
We encourage all providers and their workers (if applicable) to participate. The surveys will inform us about changes that are happening in your sector, and will help to shape the future of the NDIS. Participation is voluntary and your information remains confidential.

The evaluation will investigate the impacts of this developing scheme for delivering support to people with disability and their families and carers. It will also investigate the provision of specialist disability support from the point of view of employers and their workforces and examine the role of key stakeholders and organisations, including the NDIA.
The delivery of the NDIS in rural and remote communities such as those in the Barkly Region is likely to differ from its metropolitan counterparts. The NT evaluation will aim to provide findings about specific issues regarding the operation of the scheme in rural and remote communities with a particular focus on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people of all ages, living with disability in a range of communities.
