Thankful parents describe NDIS rollout as a blessing

TWO years will have passed since the National Disability Insurance Scheme was rolled out in Tasmania.

Col and Sharyn Burston, of Kings Meadows, describe its introduction as a blessing.

Their 24-year-old daughter Kate, who has Cornelia de Lange Syndrome, was living with four other women in a group home when the scheme was introduced.

The rollout of the NDIS in 2013 saw Mr and Mrs Burston matched with a planner who helped the family find Miss Burston a private rental, a housemate and a well-fitting service provider in St Giles.
