NDIS is the National Disability Insurance Scheme – a new way of providing community linking and individualised support for people with permanent and significant disability, their families and carers.
Trials of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) have started in a number of locations around Australia. From 1 July 2014 Western Australia will participate in a two-year trial of the NDIS. The NDIS trial in WA is unique because it will use two models in separate locations.
The State Government’s WA NDIS My Way model will be trialled in the Lower South West, starting 1 July 2014 and in Cockburn-Kwinana, starting 1 July 2015. To find out more, click here
