What is the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)?
The NDIS is a new way of providing people with disability across Australia with support to meet their disability needs and link with their community.
The scheme supports people with a permanent and significant disability to take part in everyday activities. This includes people whose disability is an intellectual, sensory or physical impairment, or a psychiatric condition.
Under the NDIS, people who meet the eligibility criteria (called participants) will be able to access supports that are related to their disability, useful, good value and fair (reasonable and necessary supports) in order to live in the community and work towards their goals and aspirations. Disability supports will be provided over a person’s life time.
Participants will have choice and control over their disability supports, including being able to choose who provides supports and how they are delivered and managed.
The NDIS in Queensland
Across Australia, the NDIS is being rolled out progressively. The NDIS rollout in Queensland will take place from 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2019. Once the roll-out is completed in 2019, the NDIS will be solely administered by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).
The Queensland Government is working closely with the Commonwealth Government and the NDIA to plan how this roll-out will happen, and is continuing to provide services for Queenslanders with disability.
The Queensland Government is delivering a range of activities to help people, providers in the disability sector and the community get ready for the NDIS.
A range of activities are also available to help people with disability, their families and carers learn more about the NDIS.
