Is the NDIS available in my area?
If a person is currently receiving disability services, they will be contacted before their region is scheduled to transition to the NDIS. Clients of defined programs and services will generally be considered to satisfy the disability requirements without further evidence being required.
If they are not currently receiving services, they will be able to apply to access the NDIS when it becomes available in their region during the staged roll-out across Australia.
People with Disability who are ineligible to apply for individual funding through the NDIS can still receive support from the NDIS with information, links and referrals to community and mainstream support services.
To better understand how the NDIS supports people with disability, their families, and carers, visit www.ndis.gov.au or call 1800 800 110.
