Dr Ben Gauntlett, Senate Estimates statement

Disability Discrimination Commissioner Dr Ben Gauntlett told Senate estimates it was important to remember that the independent assessment policy change had not yet been put into legislation. While he said he welcomed increased consistency, equity and efficacy in the delivery of scheme, he had concerns the proposed process for independent assessments undermined its effectiveness and would not have the intended effect for individuals with complex support needs.
