Abstract/Summary The Refugee Council of Australia (RCOA) is the national umbrella body for refugees, people seeking asylum and the organisations and individuals who work with them, representing over 190 organisations and 1,000 individual members. RCOA promotes the adoption of humane, lawful and constructive policies by governments and communities in Australia and internationally towards refugees, people seeking asylum and humanitarian entrants. RCOA consults regularly with its members, community leaders and people from refugee backgrounds and this submission is informed by their views. This is a submission written with support from RMIT University's Centre for Applied Social Research. This submission was prepared by Dr Christina David (lead), Dr Sharlene Nipperess and Dr Chris Maylea, of RMIT University's Centre for Applied Social Research. We thank the Joint Standing Committee on the National Disability Insurance Scheme for the opportunity to make this submission to the Inquiry into transitional arrangements for the NDIS. While the NDIS is a welcome and much needed reform in Australia's disability sector, the implementation of the NDIS has contributed to some significant issues for people from refugee and asylum seeker backgrounds, as well as people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. This submission highlights some of the issues that refugee communities have faced in the transition period for the NDIS, and proposed recommendations to improve the support for refugee communities with a disability.
