From 1 July 2016 the National Disability Insurance Scheme, also called the NDIS, will begin full roll out across Queensland.
In the first year the NDIS roll out will continue across the Townsville area, west to Mount Isa and up to the gulf; in the Mackay area and out to Whitsundays; and in Toowoomba and areas west.
Between July 2017 and June 2018, the NDIS will roll out in the greater Ipswich area; Bundaberg; and Rockhampton, Gladstone and areas west.
And finally, from July 2018, the NDIS will roll out to the remaining areas in the state including:
Eligible people currently receiving support through the Queensland Government will be moving to the NDIS alongside new participants in each of the areas. Existing Commonwealth and state based supports will continue until you are covered by the NDIS.
The NDIS will be operating state-wide by July 2019, ultimately providing support to more than 90,000 people.
The NDIS is set to roll out in Moreton Bay including Strathpine and Caboolture from the 1st of January 2019. A person may meet the access requirements to become a participant of the NDIS up to 6 months prior to this date.
If you are a person with disability who wishes to participate in the NDIS, you must first be assessed against the access requirements.
