Participant First: Help improve the NDIS

Your feedback can help make the NDIS stronger

We are working to deliver a better experience for participants. We know the best way to do this is to listen to people with lived experience of disability and first-hand experience of the NDIS. 

Participant First is a group of people who have signed up to help improve the NDIS through engagement activities such as:   

  • focus groups or interviews
  • co-design workshops on specific issues, processes or products
  • surveys, discussion papers and submissions
  • taking part in research projects. 

Join Participant First and help us make sure the voices of people with disability are at the centre of the way NDIS reforms are designed, implemented and monitored. 

We are prioritising co-design, consultation and engagement activities on the following topics: 

  • participant pathway experience 
  • assessments and budgeting  
  • navigator functions 
  • participant services 
  • psychosocial disability 
  • home and living 
  • integrity and fraud prevention 
  • workforce capability and culture 
  • participant safety 
  • supporting children and young people in the NDIS.
