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.
All disability services are delivered by the National Disability Insurance Service (NDIS), which is now fully operational in Queensland. 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 aged 65 years and over are delivered through My Aged Care.
You can find out more about how to join the NDIS by reading about the NDIS in Queensland.
