Submission To The NSW Law Reform Review Of The Guardianship Act

March 2016

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is providing people with disability, many for the first time, access to the quality supports they require to take control over decisions that affect their lives. This change has implications for legislation focused on the concept that the exercise of capacity should be limited or denied for people with disability. In this submission PWDA recommends that reviews of the Guardianship Act be undertaken regularly to reflect the changing needs of people governed by this legislation.
