According to a report on disability rights released in 2014 by the Australian Human Rights Commission, Australia lags behind other developed nations, ranking last amongst OECD countries for the relative income of people with a disability.
With the full-scale introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in July 2016, people were given the opportunity to choose where money allocated to them by the government should go. This marked a significant advance in disability services within Australia.
However, part of the difficulty with the new scheme was finding out which service to choose from the thousands on offer.
In an effort to counteract the obstacle, two Australians have created a forum enabling people to read, rate and review the disability services on offer under the NDIS with the website Clickability.
Having started in Melbourne and expanded into NSW on March 1, the site now looks set to expand nationally over the coming months.
