National Disability Insurance Scheme
The NDIS is a national scheme to provide targeted support, co-ordination and access to services for people with disabilities. It’s a single national system, which means regardless of what kind of disability you have and where you live, you will be able to equally access existing services.
The NDIS has been designed to give people with disability more choice and control in how they receive the support they might need. People with disability and their families will have more control over choosing the services that work best for them and give them the support they need.
In Victoria, the NDIS will be rolled out in different areas at different times, starting in July 2016. The NDIS will replace the existing supports that people currently receive. People currently receiving support through the Victorian Government will move to the NDIS at different times depending on where they live and the type of support they receive.
