Your Opinion Matters

Your Opinion Matters

Listening to our members is a large part of what we do and it's very important for us and to the sector. As your professional association, we want to make sure you have a direct line to NDP and whatever you have on your mind, we will listen (and carefully too!). 

Our sector is steadily gaining prominence and visibility in Australia and around the world. With the introduction of the NDIS, it is becoming increasingly more important to ensure that the sector adds to the discussions occurring in government. By voicing your opinions through NDP, we can ensure that your voice is heard. Through our partnerships with sector organisations and peak membership bodies, we can ensure that the future of the sector continues to strengthen the lives of people with disability and the sector workforce.

Remember, communication goes both ways.

Go ahead and send us an email or give us a call. Tell us what you need from us? Let's discuss how we can make the sector stronger? Do you have news, an upcoming event, or feedback to share? Want to ask a question? We're just an email or phone call away.
