On 16 September 2015, the bilateral agreements for the roll out of the NDIS in New South Wales and Victoria were signed by governments. It is expected that almost 245,000 Australians will ultimately be covered by the NDIS in New South Wales and Victoria. Negotiations on bilateral agreements are continuing between the Commonwealth and the other state and territory governments.
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.
The NDIA will be hosting two webinars on the NDIS roll out. One for NSW and one for Victoria. Details are as follows:
Thursday 1 October 2015:
– NSW (10:00am – 11:00am AEST)
– VIC (1:00pm – 2:00pm AEST)
These sessions will be focused on providing information to people living in areas where the Scheme will soon be available, (as detailed in the bilateral agreements).
We are here to answer your questions on how you might access the Scheme and what you can do to prepare.
Hear from our panel as they discuss their experiences of the NDIS trial to date and what you can expect as the Scheme is delivered across NSW and Victoria.
Join the discussion by sending your questions before or during the webinar.
