1HUMAN SERVICES RESEARCHExecutive SummaryThe National Disability Insurance Scheme, introduced in 2013, in the Australian economy, hasbeen aimed to target the disability burden of the country, which have been increasing with theincrease in the population of the country. The NDIS, though being rolled out across the countryin the recent period, had both positive as well as negative implications in the overall societalwelfare in the country. The scheme has gained substantial negative feedbacks, especially fromthose who are directly linked to the scheme. This has been mainly due to the problems of lack ofcoordination, lack of transparency, inadequate resources, improper distribution of facilities andtechnical inabilities. With proper build up of efficient workforce and sufficient resources andclever implementation of the coordination strategies, these issues can be resolved to aconsiderable extent in the country.
