Agreement reached on NDIS
I am delighted to advise that South Australia has reached an agreement with the Commonwealth to fully roll out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in South Australia.
This is fantastic news for all those with disability, their carers, families and loved ones.
The NDIS takes a whole-of-life approach to working with people with a disability to develop individualised, tailored plans that meet the current and ongoing needs of people with disability.
The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is currently working on developing plans for children up to the age of 14 and will continue to do so until 1 January 2017, when young people aged 15 to 17 years will be included. Full roll-out also means that people up to the age of 6
4 years old will be able to participate in the NDIS by 30 June 2018.
I am proud to say that South Australia was the first state to sign up to the NDIS trial and also one of the first states to sign up to the full roll-out of the NDIS.
This announcement continues Labor’s commitment to the NDIS – a reform to give people with disability and their families hope for a better future.
