NDIS trial expands to shires of Murray and Serpentine-Jarrahdale

More Western Australians will gain access to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) over the next year with the Commonwealth and Western Australian governments extending the current trials to July 2017 and expanding them to additional locations in the state, including Murray Shire.

The Commonwealth and WA State Governments also agreed to finalise arrangements for the statewide roll out of the NDIS in WA by October 2016, with the rollout expected to start on 1 July 2017.

Federal social services minister Christian Porter said the agreement would give certainty to around 10,900 current and future participants of ongoing support and would ensure more Western Australians will benefit from the NDIS while the details of the full scheme model were being finalised.
