ACT set to be first jurisdiction to accept all eligible people onto NDIS

The ACT is set to become the first place in Australia to accept all eligible people into the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

The Territory is set to reach the milestone by the end of September.

The ACT government claims the territory is out performing other trial sites, according to a progress report on the scheme’s implementation released on Tuesday.

Minister for Disability Chris Bourke said the ACT’s NDIS trial was progressing well and was on track to ensuring all eligible participants had appropriate access to NDIS supports.
