Engaging with the NDIS

People with disability have the same right of access to service as all Australians.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is one of the largest social policy reforms in Australia's history. By 2019 the NDIS will support about 460,000 Australians under the age of 65 with a permanent and significant disability. The NDIS provides people with individualised support and the flexibility to manage their supports to help them achieve their goals and enjoy an ordinary life. The NDIS replaces a disability system that was deemed unfair and inefficient with a new, national system that is world-leading, equitable and sustainable.

The rollout of the NDIS commenced in the Sydney and South Eastern Sydney regions on 1 July 2017. We will play a role in supporting health professionals by sharing available information about transition.
