Research Project

Exploring the use of capacity building supports to help make individualised living a reality

The NDIA and Scope want to understand how supports received can help a person live where and how they want to live.

We are conducting a research project to learn more about the supports NDIS participants use, or want to use, to help them live more independently. Your taking part will help us understand what the NDIS can do to better support participants to move towards more individualised living options, and to have more choice and control over where participants live and how they live.

There are two surveys: (1) for NDIS participants (those who have an intellectual disability, autism, Down syndrome, psychosocial disability or cerebral palsy) and (2) for supporters (e.g., family members, carers, support workers, other paid staff).

Participation in the research is voluntary and your responses will be anonymous. The survey will take about 20 minutes to complete. The NDIS participant survey is also available in easy English. https://www.ndis.gov.au/community/have-your-say#open
