NDIS: everyone's involved

The NDIS is a huge reform, and whilst there has been a lot of focus on disability organisations adapting to the new system, we all need to be NDIS ready. All services will likely have to interact with the NDIS in one way or another, but because it's new it’s hard to know what you need to know and how the NDIS might work in your patch. On this page we’ll provide regular updates to demystify the NDIS and how it is working with other services. Keep up to date by signing up to our Ageing and Disability eNews:
