WA Premier Colin Barnett still cautious about National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

WA Premier Colin Barnett still has reservations about the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

WA is the only state not to sign up to the scheme in which funding decisions would be made outside the state.

The roll-out in mid-2017 in WA will be a year later than the rest of the country.

The NDIS is supposed to provide better services and funding for people with disabilities, in a way that is more personalised and done through a uniform and national scheme, rather than state-based ones.
