Submission on NDIS Savings Fund Special Account Bill 2016

Tandem has responded to the Senate Community Affairs Legislation Committee Inquiry on the National Disability Insurance Scheme Savings Fund Special Account Bill 2016, which introduces a special ‘Savings Fund’ to redirect underspends and identified savings to help meet the Australian Government’s contribution to the NDIS.

Tandem’s submission welcomed the pledge to deliver and fund the NDIS in full, but expressed concern that re-directing funds from existing services may have a negative impact on families and mental health carers. Any re-direction of funds should not be to the detriment of existing services that provide essential supports to mental health carers.

Submissions made for the inquiry here.
