Last week Northern Territory Government Minister for Disabilities, Kate Worden, took part in the Federal Ministers Disability Reform meeting.
During the meeting a wide range of topics were discussed including the need to accelerate COVID-19 vaccination rates for people with disability and disability workers.
There were also discussions regarding creating more appropriate supports and choice for individuals with a disability in remote communities.

Consultation is still open for another four weeks on the Territory’s first Disability Strategy. There are 20,500 Territorians with a disability and this strategy aims to improve services for them. One major of aspect of the strategy and what consultation will look at, is the National Disability Insurance Scheme and how we can maximise the potential of the NDIS in the Northern Territory.
