National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

Council is seeking feedback on a report which outlines Council’s planned approach to the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

See Council's approach to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) to provide feedback. Feedback closes at 5 pm on Monday 1 February 2018.

Background

The NDIS will be rolled out in Moreland from March 2018.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) supports people with a permanent and significant disability that affects their ability to take part in everyday activities.

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.

It is expected to take up to 12 months for eligible people with disability to enter the NDIS once roll-out starts in an area. Existing Commonwealth and state-based services and supports will continue until eligible people start their plans with the NDIS.

Upcoming NDIS information sessions

Information sessions for local people with a disability, their families and carers.

 

Where can I find more information?

Information packs on the Victorian roll-out have been developed for service providers and future participants. These resources include a range of fact sheets and frequently asked questions on the NDIS and the Victorian roll out.

Information packs and more information is available on the NDIS website. Or call the NDIS hotline 1800 800 110.
