The issue of ongoing funding for disability advocacy and information organisations in NSW has been the subject of public, and more recently parliamentary, debate. Since the full-roll out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in NSW the operating environment for these organisations has changed dramatically. Between May and July 2019 NCOSS conducted a small research project that collected information from 34 disability advocacy and information organisations. The research focussed on the experiences of these organisations; the changes since the end of previous block funding for specialist disability services and the full roll out of the NDIS, and their plans for the future.
