The number of ndis participants who have died

The request was successful.

Dear National Disability Insurance Agency,

I would like any documents or updates that relate to the number of NDIS participants who have died of COVID.

I would also like an update to this data - https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/7... - I would like the same comparable data for the months of October 2021, November 2021 and to the date of receipt for January 2021 (all mortality exits).

If you could break this down by state, that would be useful. Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Karen Reynolds
