NDIS set to improve lives of Northern Queenslanders

Posted on 25 September 2015

Today the Commonwealth and Queensland Governments announced NDIS early transition sites in Townsville, Charters Towers and Palm Island.

Around 1600 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 by 1 July 2016. The remaining 1000 eligible people from the early transition sites will receive their funded packages from July 2016.

The Queensland early transition sites will deliver supports and services to children and young people under 18 years of age in Townsville and Charters Towers and all eligible people under the age of 65 in Palm Island.

The early transition is available to those who meet the NDIS access requirements, including people who do not currently receive supports from the Commonwealth or State governments.
