We are pleased to announce the Disability Innovation Institute’s second Research Seminar event of 2019. An interactive session, co-hosted by the Disability Innovation Institute and the UNSW NDIS Scholars Network.


The Australian National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the largest and most challenging reform Australia has seen in a generation. Once fully implemented, it will affect the lives of over 400,000 Australians with a disability, their families and carers. Creating the NDIS has seen the dismantling of existing disability services, the establishment of a new co-owned body between the States and the Federal Government, a new regulator, 13,000 new positions to administer the scheme and massive culture change across a whole sector. Not surprisingly, this scale of change has come with challenges and unexpected problems. We barely go a day without the NDIS making national headlines.

The DIIU is hosting an interactive workshop on the NDIS, where Associate Professor Gemma Carey and Dr Sue Olney will talk about the structure of the scheme, the implementation challenges, and answer all the questions you’ve been wanting (or were too afraid) to ask.


  • Associate Professor Gemma Carey, CSI UNSW co-Research Director
  • Dr Sue Olney, Research Fellow in the Public Service Research Group in the School of Business at UNSW Canberra
