Nicholas Power's reflection on the night with Bill Shorten

On Monday night, Cheryl Dixon (Director of Rural Lifestyle Options Australia) and Nicholas Power (Executive Leader of Business Development) attended an event hosted by Gadens in Brisbane where Bill Shorten (Minister for the National Disability Insurance Scheme of Australia) spoke about the current NDIS landscape and his vision for the future.

You can read Nicholas Power's reflection on the night in the original post below 👇🏻

“Bill’s address reinforced his recently announced six-pronged approach to overhauling the National Disability Insurance Agency which includes a lift in staffing, longer-term care plans for participants, addressing fraud and rorting within the scheme, supporting more people with a disability to live at home, purging ineffective providers and linking other community services up to the NDIA better.

After meeting with Bill, his passion for the scheme and what it represents for people with a disability is irrefutable. Many of the moves he has enacted since his appointment would suggest a brighter future for those accessing the scheme. At the heart of his decision-making process, is his vision for the scheme to return to serving the best interests of the people who use it, a passion shared by many who work within the sector including myself.” ___________________ To learn more about how Rural Lifestyle Options Australia enriches the lives of the people we support, please visit
