WALGA consults with its members on a variety of topics to inform our advocacy and service offering to members.

The scope of our requests for feedback reflects the range of operations conducted by Local Government.
Please see below for items for which we are currently seeking feedback from our members.

Key Contact Person Needed: National Disability Insurance Scheme Survey

Local Governments are asked to provide WALGA with a key contact person by Wednesday, 10 May to complete a survey about the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
The NDIS is the largest social services reform the country has seen since Medicare. It will roll-out in WA in July .

To give the sector the best chance of preparing for the challenges and opportunities that may arise with its implementation, WALGA has engaged a consultant to undertake preliminary work.

All Local Governments are asked to provide a key contact who will be sent a link to undertake the survey.

The survey link needs to be completed by Thursday, 18 May

The survey data will be vital in informing the consultant’s report and will determine WALGA’s future advocacy and operational assistance to the sector.

Please note that due to the nature of survey questions, input may be required from finance, economics, human resources and community areas.
