Getting ready for the move to the NDIS

The NDIS rollout in NSW will begin in just a few months, with people with disability in year one districts due to begin moving to the NDIS from 1 July 2016.

With so many people coming into the Scheme in a short time, it is important that there is a planned approach as to how and when they access the NDIS.

People currently accessing accommodation and community high supports from the NSW Government in year 1 rollout areas will enter the Scheme first – between July and September 2016.

Over the next few weeks NSW will write to people in accommodation and community high supports to let them know how and when they will move to the NDIS.

People in year one areas that access other types of supports such community access, community support, respite and community care as will move to the NDIS throughout the remainder of the year.

More information is available on the resources section of the NDIS NSW website.
