On Thursday 5 November 2020, BCA hosted an online forum to discuss the NDIA Independent Assessments and the Participant Charter. Rikki Chaplin, Policy and Advocacy Team Leader hosted and facilitated the session which featured a presentation and question time with Dr Sam Bennett, General Manager of the Policy, Advice and Research Division of the National Disability Insurance Agency.
The session proved to be quite popular, with over 50 in attendance and though Dr Bennett kept his remarks brief to keep time for questions, there were more questions than we had time for so some had their queries attended to post-session via email. The discussion was engaged, focussed and useful and Dr Bennett offered clear answers to attendees concerns.
We are waiting for NDIA approval to share the recording of the event here on our website.
