<p>The National Ethnic Disability Alliance (NEDA) with the assistance of the National Disability and Carer’s Alliance (NDCA) held a parliamentary roundtable discussion to present five key position statements in regards to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and the needs of individuals from non-English speaking backgrounds (NESB) and/or culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds (CaLD) with a disability.<br />
<br />
These five position statements were formulated by way of a survey/ questionnaire that was circulated to NEDA member organisations and other key stakeholders, where constituents were asked to nominate five areas that they felt needed to be addressed and discussed at the roundtable. The roundtable was held on March 12th 2013 with over fifty people in attendance representing a varied stakeholder group from within the CaLD/ NESB community living with disability, some of these organisations were direct service providers working at the coalface as well as several advocacy groups both systemic and direct/ personal.</p>
