A preferred South Australian NDIS provider
The NDIS is a Commonwealth funded national scheme to support those living with a disability to access supports and services that help them live the life they choose.
How is the NDIS being rolled out in South Australia?
The NDIS is being introduced in stages, because it’s a big change and it is important to get it right and make it sustainable. Existing service users and new participants will enter the scheme progressively. The NDIS is expected to cover all of South Australia and all age groups by July 2018, ultimately providing support to about 32,000 people with disability.
From 1 February 2016, children aged between 0 to 14 years of began receiving services from the NDIS.
From 1 January 2017, young people aged between 15 and 17 years of age will begin to enter the NDIS.
From 1 July 2017, adults aged 18 to 64 years of age will begin to enter the NDIS based on where they live.
Existing Commonwealth and state-based services and supports will continue until eligible people with disability start their plans with the NDIS.
For adults aged 18 to 64 years of age currently receiving services from Country Health Connect, the start date for transition to the NDIS will be based on where they live. The roll out areas can be found on the NDIS website.
