National consultations on future of supported school transport under the NDIS

consultation, engagement, workshop facilitation, report

The Social Deck was engaged by the Commonwealth Government to work across state and territories to facilitate national face-to-face consultations on the future of supported school transport for students with a disability. We delivered face-to-face consultations around the country on the discussion paper released by Department of Social Services, to seek people’s views on the benefits and challenges of current supported school transport verse potential new arrangements under the NDIS.

This included 19 stakeholder workshops with transport providers, schools and other stakeholders and 29 in-depth interviews with groups of parents and carers. In total more than 520 people were consulted face-to-face.

We produced a comprehensive report on the insights gathered and findings of the face-to-face consultations to support future decisions by governments.
