We’re hearing a lot about the shortcomings of the NDIS and the threat of independent assessments. While these are important issues, what about the 90% of Australians with disability who are not eligible for the NDIS at all?

The Assistive Technology for All Alliance is advocating for a universal assistive technology program to meet the needs of people with disability who are excluded from the NDIS. Come along to our free online forum featuring former Disability Discrimination Commissioner, Graeme Innes AM to find out more.

During this event, you will:

      *Learn more about Australia’s obligation to provide assistive technology to people who need it

      *Hear from people with disability who are directly affected by the lack of access to assistive technology outside the NDIS

      *Learn more about the Assistive Technology For All campaign and how you can get involved

This event will be Auslan interpreted
