Australia’s National Disability Insurance Scheme has transformed the lives of thousands of people, but Four Corners exposes criminals, opportunists and registered providers who have been overcharging and defrauding the system.
This episode also contains shocking video showing how a teenage boy with autism was treated during an NDIS-funded therapy session.
The revelations come following a three-month crowdsourced investigation which resulted in submissions from hundreds of NDIS participants, families and workers.
We reveal how some of Australia’s most vulnerable people living with disability are being virtually kidnapped for their NDIS funding.
Consequently, hundreds are “missing” in the system, with the NDIS regulator unaware of where they are and no authorities monitoring their welfare.
The investigation also reveals young people suffering extensive injuries whilst under the care of NDIS-approved providers.
This episode of Four Corners was originally broadcast as ‘Careless’ on ABC TV and ABC iview on 25 September 2023.
