National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will be rolled out in Moreland from March 2018.

The NDIS is being introduced in stages, because it’s a big change and it is important to get it right and make it sustainable. Existing service users and new participants will enter the scheme progressively.

It is expected to take up to 12 months for eligible people with disability to enter the NDIS once roll-out starts in an area. Existing Commonwealth and state-based services and supports will continue until eligible people start their plans with the NDIS.

Where can I find more information?

Information packs on the Victorian roll-out have been developed for service providers and future participants. These resources include a range of fact sheets and frequently asked questions on the NDIS and the Victorian roll out.

Information packs and more information is available on the NDIS website. Or call the NDIS hotline 1800 800 110.

NDIS information sessions

Moreland and Hume Councils are holding four free NDIS information sessions for local people with disability, parents and carers:

The session covers:

  • What you need to know about the roll-out of the NDIS in your area.
  • Basics on the NDIS: what it is, who can benefit, what it funds and how it works.
  • Hear from people who have transitioned to the scheme.
  • Questions answered, both personal and technical.

Upcoming NDIS information sessions

Information sessions for local people with a disability, their families and carers.
