What we’ve been asked to look at

The focus of this study is the National Disability Agreement (established in 2009 and revised in 2012), which relates to the provision of disability services.

The Commission will review the Agreement, including by examining progress against the performance framework in the Agreement and the extent to which it has supported improved outcomes for people with disability, their families, and carers.

This is the first of the Commission’s reviews of nationally significant sector-wide agreements between the Commonwealth and the States and Territories.

The Commission will consult broadly and actively with all jurisdictions and other stakeholders.

It set out some of the issues and questions the Commission has identified as relevant to the early stage of the study. Participants should provide evidence to support their views, including data and specific examples where possible.
