NDIS and inequality

A report identifies inequality and service problems in the NDIS.

  • Males and people with higher incomes are more likely to benefit from the NDIS
  • Market gaps in the NDIS are a growing problem
  • Money in NDIS plans that isn’t spent by participants could be reclaimed by the NDIS, even if they’ve been sitting on a waiting list
  • Women, non-men and people with lower education levels are least likely to find providers for their care, putting them at risk of having their money reclaimed
  • Service providers are now less able to respond to general crisis events.
