Dear Parents / Carers,

An opprtunity has been provided (read below) for you to share your opinion regarding future of supported school transport working alongside the NDIS.  This is our chance to impact on the decision making process.  I encourage you to read the discussion paper about the future of supported school transport online at engage.dss.gov.au prior to attending.  If you are unable to attend you can still have your say by making a submission directly to the Department of Social Services online.  Current supported school transport arrangments will remain the responsibility of state and territory governments until all governments have considered the outcomes of the consultation and agreed on an approach.

Regards,

Claire Rafferty.
(Principal)

INVITATION TO REGISTER INTEREST

As the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) comes into place, the Australian Government wants to hear directly from NDIS participants, parents, carers, school communities and transport providers about how we could best support transport to and from school for NDIS participants into the future.

The Department of Social Services, state and territory governments and the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) are working together to understand if and how supported school transport could be delivered in the NDIS.

To help inform future options, we are holding a series of discussion forums with parents, carers and representatives of the school community to discuss what’s needed to support children who have a disability to travel to school under the NDIS.

We will also be holding workshops with the services and supports delivering supported school transport, such as transport providers, disability services, advocates and other interested stakeholders.

Current supported school transport arrangements will remain the responsibility of state and territory governments until all governments have considered the outcomes of the consultation and agreed on an approach.
