NSW budget 2015: NDIS lifts disability spending

NDIS funding will increase 6.7 per cent and by 2018 the state will spend $3.1bn a year on the full scheme, together with $3.3bn from the commonwealth.

The government has offered a further $28m to continue the redevelopment of supported accommodation options in the state as it forges ahead with the closure of large residential institutions in the Hunter Region.
