Supporting people with disability

Hon Jane Prentice MP, Assistant Minister for Social Services and Disability Services and Federal Member for Ryan, said people with disability in Ryan would benefit from the Turnbull Government’s 2018 Budget.

“In this year’s Budget, the Government has guaranteed funding for the NDIS,” Mrs Prentice said.

The Budget also provided:

  • $92.6 million to ensure Australians who were users of Commonwealth services but not eligible for the NDIS would continue to receive support.
  • $64 million for a Jobs and Market Fund that would promote NDIS job opportunities and improve local business access to the NDIS.
    “The Government continues to deliver the rollout of the NDIS that is placing people first and giving them choice and control over the services they receive,” Mrs Prentice said.

“The NDIS is strengthening our economy and guaranteeing essential services by creating tens of thousands of new jobs and boosting opportunities for businesses across the country.

“The total NDIS workforce is expected to double to more than 160,000 jobs by 2020, which means there will be employment and business opportunities to support people with disability in Ryan.”
