Monday 19 June 2017
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) starts in the Sydney electorate from 1 July, with people who use NSW specialist disability services and Commonwealth disability programs moving into the new scheme first. Existing support services will continue until the NDIS takes over. New applicants for NDIS support won’t be able to apply until 1 July 2018 unless there are urgent or exceptional circumstances. The NDIS aims to provide individualised support for people with disability, their families and carers based on a care plan. There are information sessions on Monday 26 June at 31 Alfred Street Circular Quay, at 10.30am-12.30pm and 5-7pm. Details HERE or phone 1800 800 110.
