Decisions about NDIS (AAT)

Summer Foundation

The Summer Foundation's aim is to resolve the issue of young people living in nursing homes. The rollout of the NDIS is the single biggest opportunity to stop young Australians with disability going into aged care, and for younger people already living in nursing homes. It may provide a pathway back to living in the community.
