NDIS rollout starts across Australia

The long-awaited National Disability Insurance Scheme starts rolling out across Australia from Friday for the next three years.

National Disability Insurance Agency chairman Bruce Bonyhady said this would revolutionise disability support and transform the lives of 460,000 disabled Australians, their families and carers.

“This is a historic day for people with disability and the broader Australian community. Today we move away from the old one-size-fits-all approach to a new approach which is based on choice and control for people with disability on a scale not seen anywhere in the world,” he said in a statement.
