THE anticipated NDIS has officially arrived in our region!
People across Australia are NDIS ready after the July 1 roll out date came into effect over the weekend.
These new roll-out areas include:
- Northern Territory
Darwin Remote, Katherine and eligible people in supported accommodation in Alice Springs
- New South Wales
South Eastern Sydney, Sydney, Far West District, Illawarra Shoalhaven, Mid North Coast, Murrumbidgee, Northern NSW and Western NSW
- South Australia
Barossa Light and Lower North and Northern Adelaide for adults aged 18 to 64 years
Children aged 4 to 11
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.
