NDIS Roll Out Information

5 things you need to know about the NDIS in NSW

Map of Australia highlighting state of NSW.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing individualised support for people with disability, their families and carers. The NDIS is the insurance that gives us all peace of mind. Disability could affect anyone and having the right support makes a big difference.

The NDIS provides eligible people a flexible, whole-of-life approach to the support needed to pursue their goals and aspirations and participate in daily life.

1. What

The Commonwealth and New South Wales governments have agreed on how the NDIS will be rolled out across NSW. The NDIS already has a trial site in the Hunter region and an early transition site in Nepean Blue Mountains for 2000 children and young people aged 17 and under.

2. When

The NDIS is a big change and will be progressively rolled out across NSW. The NDIS will be operating state-wide by July 2018.
