Getting Ready for the NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing support for people with disability, their families and carers in Australia.

The roll out of the NDIS begins from 1 July 2016 and is being introduced in stages around the country over the next three years to ensure it is successful and sustainable.

To support the national roll out of the NDIS, the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) has launched NDIS Ready.

NDIS Ready is a community awareness raising project aimed at preparing  people with disability, their families and carers to join the NDIS from 1 July 2016. It is also targeted at getting disability service providers and the broader community ready for the NDIS.

The NDIS is coming to Western Sydney and now is the time to get ready.

Visit www.ndis.gov.au or call 1800 800 110 to find out how people with disability, providers and the community can get NDIS Ready.

There are also a number of NDIS Information Sessions being held around NSW. Visit www.ndis.gov.au for details about NDIS Information Sessions, or contact Community Resource Network to find out where and when these are happening in Western Sydney.
