National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)


As of 1 March 2018, The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is live in Moreland. 

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. Existing Commonwealth and state-based services and supports will continue until eligible people start their plans with the NDIS.

NDIS mental health resources

Mental health access  snapshots have been designed to assist people to understand the requirements of the NDIS access process in relation to psychosocial disability, and demystify the access process.

These snapshots have been co-designed with members of the National Mental Health Sector Reference Group and people with lived experience.
