We need a strong NDIS to support everyone in our community to live the life they want

Campaign to support a strong NDIS

The NDIS is vital for Australians living with disability.

Before the NDIS, there weren’t as many services and people had to fight for them.

A strong NDIS lets people with disability live their best lives by building a skilled support team around them. This doesn’t just make things better for people with disability but also for all Australians.

We need to remind the government and others how important the NDIS is, and make sure people know how risky it would be to weaken the scheme. National Disability Services (NDS), our industry peak body, has launched ‘Teamwork works’ – a national campaign to help.

Li-Ve Tasmania will support the Teamwork works campaign in the lead up to the next federal election.

We will share stories about how people use the NDIS to achieve their goals and live the life they want. We’ll also highlight the risks of continued cuts to people’s support plans.

If you have a story to share, let us know. You can email marketing@livetasmania.org

You can also help by talking about the issue with your family and friends, and sign up to support the campaign at teamwork.org.au. Like and share the updates and posts on the Li-Ve Tas and Teamwork works Facebook pages to help spread the word.

By working together we can help ensure the NDIS remains strong and continues to support people living with disability to live their best lives.

Oakdale Lodge

You may have heard we’re reimagining Oakdale Lodge. Oakdale Lodge is an important part of Li-Ve Tasmania. We have a project team that’s developing a master plan for The Lodge site. The plan will be ready by the middle of next year. The Lodge will stay open until at least mid-2024.
