Minister Foley – NDIS

Today the roll out of the NDIS becomes a reality in Victoria.

The Commonwealth and Victorian Governments have demonstrated their commitment to the roll out of the NDIS across Victoria, by signing a Bilateral Agreement for transition to the Scheme.

This is a significant achievement for people with a disability and the broader community, who have been strongly advocating for this commitment.

We will be rolling out from July 2016, and by June 2019 we expect 105,000 Victorians will be participants of the Scheme.

When implemented, the NDIS will reshape the way services are delivered to people with a disability, their families and carers, including those with a psychosocial disability.
