Background information about the NDIS in Western Australia
Following the Commonwealth trial implemented by the National Disability Insurance Agency(NDIA) and the WA NDIS trial implemented by the WA State Government, a Bilateral Agreement was signed in January 2017 stating that the NDIS would be implemented by the WA Government in WA.
The Commonwealth and WA Governments have now announced that the national NDIS (delivered by the NDIA) will be rolled out in Western Australia. This means there will eventually be only one NDIS delivered by the NDIA across every state and territory of Australia.
From 1 July 2018, the NDIA will assume responsibility for the delivery of the NDIS in WA. The NDIS will continue to roll out on a geographic basis and will be fully rolled out across Western Australia by 2020.
The NDIA and Western Australian governments are committed to ensuring the transition process is managed carefully and supports participants, families and carers and providers.
