Women, girls, feminine identifying and non-binary people with disabilities experience multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination. Not taking gender into account in designing the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has led to significant barriers for women and girls with disability in accessing reasonable and necessary supports. The NDIS Review did not adequately consider our experiences.

We need a NDIS Gender Strategy to address inequities in the NDIS.

The NDIA must develop a comprehensive NDIS Gender Strategy in consultation with women, girls feminine identifying and non-binary people with disabilities, and their representative organisations.
