The NDIA has released the Quarterly Report to disability ministers Q3 2021-22.

This Quarterly Report provides detailed information on Scheme performance from 1 January 2022 to 31 March 2022.

It contains a wide range of National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) data and provides commentary about the Scheme’s progress, successes, and challenges.

It also meets the requirements under Section 174 of the National Disability Insurance Act 2013 to provide public information about the progress of the NDIS.

Information in this Quarterly Report includes:

  • The ways we have worked across governments to support participants, providers, staff and partners this quarter during the COVID-19 pandemic (from page 5).
  • How we worked alongside disability support organisations to support flood-affected participants across Queensland and New South Wales (from page 7).
  • An update on our engagement work to strengthen relationships and build trust with the disability sector (from page 8).
