National Disability Insurance Scheme Launch Transition Agency
The National Disability Insurance Scheme Launch Transition Agency has been established by the Australian Government to implement the first stage of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). The Agency is working with the Commonwealth and state and territory governments to ensure improved support for people with disability, their family and carers, and to deliver the first stage of the NDIS.
The first stage of the NDIS will commence from July 2013 in South Australia, Tasmania, the Hunter in NSW and the Barwon area of Victoria providing support for thousands of people with significant and permanent disability. The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) will follow in 2014.
This will be an exciting, challenging and immensely rewarding opportunity to be part of a system wide reform across Australia unparalleled in the social policy arena for many years.
