If you are a person living with disability or caring for someone with disability in Queensland, you may have noticed some changes in the way that disability services are delivered.
These changes have not begun everywhere in Queensland. In the future, all disability services will be delivered by the National Disability Insurance Service (NDIS). The NDIS is currently being rolled out across Queensland. In some areas of Queensland, the NDIS is available, but in some other areas, it has yet to begin. You can find out more about how the NDIS works by reading An introduction to disability services and the NDIS.
NDIS is a Commonwealth Government system to support Australians under 65 who have permanent and significant disability. The NDIS is run by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA). Services for people over the age of 65 are delivered through My Aged Care.
If you are currently receiving support through the Queensland government, you will move to the NDIS as it becomes available in your region. You can find out more about how to join the NDIS by reading about the NDIS in Queensland.
