Parents and advocates welcome NDIS deal

The federal and state governments last week reached a deal to ensure the NDIS will be gradually introduced across Victoria, starting in Whittlesea next July and coming to the Macedon Ranges in May, 2017.

The scheme will provide personalised care and support for people with disabilities by July, 2019. Sunbury disability advocate Phil Hatton said the NDIS would fix a broken and messy system. ‘

‘At the moment, getting assistance for parents is an absolute minefield,’’ he said.
