IAC ADVICE

The IAC provides independent advice to the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) Board to ensure the realisation of the vision and the values of the NDIS.

The IAC draws on its membership and their networks, as well as roving visits to launch sites and roundtable discussions to understand how the NDIS is being experienced on the ground.

An Intellectual Disability Reference Group was also established to provide additional support to the IAC in advising the Board on issues related to people with intellectual disability to ensure equitable access and appropriate support for all people with disability.

This advice is contained in a number of papers submitted to the NDIA Board which are available below.

8.2 Implementing the NDIS for people with disabilities related to mental health issues (2014)
