WHAT IS THE NDIS

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

The NDIS is jointly funded by the Australian Commonwealth Government and the State Governments.


Global Disability & Health Care Services is an NDIS Registered Service Provider - No. 68825587

NDIS IN NEW SOUTH WALES

The first stage of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in New South Wales began in the Hunter area on 1 July 2013. From 1 July 2015 the NDIS started in the Nepean Blue Mountains area for children and young people under 18 years of age.

From 1 July 2016 the NDIS will begin to be available across other areas of New South Wales.


WHO CAN ACCESS THE NDIS?

The NDIS is being introduced in stages, because it’s a big change and it is important to get it right and make it sustainable. Existing service users and new participants will enter the scheme progressively.

In NSW, the NDIS will be rolled out by district. When the NDIS commences in a district, people currently receiving supports through New South Wales Government specialist disability services will be moving first.

Existing Commonwealth and state-based services and supports will continue until eligible people with disability start their plans with the NDIS.

If you are not currently receiving disability supports you can apply to access the NDIS from 1 July 2018 (except those in urgent or exceptional circumstances).
