This month we hosted online forums for stakeholders interested in the AAT’s migration and refugee area of practice as well as the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
More than 160 participants came together for the NDIS forum and presenters from the National Disability Insurance Agency, Department of Social Services, Legal Aid NSW and the advocacy agency People with Disability Australia, shared their knowledge and experiences.
Key areas of discussion included our increased caseload, upcoming changes to the NDIS including Independent Assessments, legal representation, and overcoming accessibility challenges.

The migration and refugee forums were held over two sessions with more than a hundred participants. AAT senior representatives, including Deputy President Jan Redfern, provided updates on our caseloads before opening up to the participants for Q&A on operational practices and lodgements and finalisations.
