Following a recent funding announcement new measures will be rolled out which aim to get more Aboriginal people living remotely in Western Australia to access the National Disability Insurance Scheme, NDIS.
The $4.6 million dollar investment will see the National Disability Insurance Agency work with Aboriginal Medical Services to deliver two programs in the Kimberley, Pilbara and Goldfields regions.
Speaking to CAAMA Radio CEO of the First Peoples Disability Network, Damian Griffis welcomed the funding but says more needs to be done to ensure people living remotely get the services needed.
The First Peoples Disability Network has added its voice to concerns about two of the commissioners recently appointed to the Royal Commission into the Abuse and Neglect of People with Disabilities.
