QLD NDIS Roll Out Ahead of Schedule

The Queensland Government has announced the National Disability Insurance Scheme will be available in North Queensland from early 2016 – six months ahead of the full roll out.

The decision means that people with disability aged under 18 in Townsville and Charters Towers, and all eligible people with disability on Palm Island will be the first in Queensland to access the NDIS.

Around 1,600 people are expected to be eligible for the NDIS in the early transition sites, with up to 600 of these people expected to receive their funded packages before 1 July next year.
