Open letter from the disability sector to the NDIA
SCIA is one of 20 organisations calling for greater accountability and transparency from the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) regarding the results from settlements with the Administrative Appeals Tribunals (AAT).
Currently, 97% of NDIS appeals lodged with the AAT are settled privately with details remaining confidential.
In a statement by the Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC), Senior Solicitor Chadwick Wong said that "transparency and accountability are essential to promoting confidence in the system."

Over the past few months we have all had to learn to do things differently. Whether it’s been shopping online, using Zoom or FaceTime to catch-up with family and friends or for SCIA, moving our services online whilst staff work from home.
For our Peer & Family Support Team this has been a difficult time. Normally based in NSW’s major Spinal Units, the team is currently working from home using our new online Telehealth program, our online Forum or the phone to keep providing the vital help and support needed for those with a spinal cord injury, and their families.
Although we do receive some funding for this wonderful service, sadly this doesn’t cover all the costs to provide this vital program.
Your donation will help us continue providing much needed support, information, advice and mentorship for people with spinal cord injuries and their families.
