NDIS

SCIA is committed to sharing as much information as we can with clients and members about transitioning into the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). There is a lot to learn quite quickly about the NDIS and we want you to know that SCIA can guide you every step of the way. We work closely with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to make sure our members and clients have the latest news and information and everything NDIS. We also have a free telephone service for our members and we will share information via our website, e-newsletter, Accord magazine and email. Make sure to read information we provide to you to help you transition into the NDIS.

The National Insurance Disability Scheme (NDIS) is the new way Australia is providing support for people with permanent and significant disabilities. It will give people with a disability direct access to money, through the creation of an annual plan, to fund the supports they need to live life and achieve their goals. The NDIS has been trialled over the last three years in a number of regions across Australia, by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).

The NDIA began the NSW rollout of the NDIS on 1 July 2016 for the districts of the Central Coast, Northern Sydney, South Western Sydney, Southern NSW, Western Sydney, Hunter New England and Nepean Blue Mountains. Whilst many SCIA members have received their first plan others are still awaiting their NDIS planning meeting. The rest of the state will transition to the NDIS from July 2017. For a full list of all Australian NDIS rollout dates please visit our NDIS rollout page.

To help you get ready for the NDIS we have provided some useful information about what you need to know about the NDIS, including what you need to do to prepare and how the process will work.
