NDIS in Western Australia
The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) assumed responsibility for the delivery of the NDIS in WA in July 2018. The NDIS will continue to roll out on a geographic basis and will be fully rolled out across Western Australia by 2020.
If you are not already on disabilty supports, you can apply to join the NDIS up to six months before the scheme is available in your region.
People already taking part in the WA NDIS (delivered by the WA State Government - formerly known as My Way) started to transfer to the nationally delivered Scheme in a phased approach from April 2018. The transfer of people from the WA NDIS will conclude by December 2018.
If you are transferring from the WA NDIS to the nationally delivered scheme, you will be contacted by the Western Australian Government abour your next steps.
For more information regarding transferring from WA NDIS to the nationally delivered NDIS, read the transfer plan:

Early Childhood Early Intervention
The Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) approach is available to all children aged 0-6 with a developmental delay or disability in line with the roll out of the NDIS.
The NDIA is finalising arrangements for delivery of ECEI Services in Western Australia and expects to make further announcements shortly
For all areas of Western Australia please contact 1800 800 110 to access the NDIS in your area.
Local Area Coordination
For most people aged 7 and above, a Local Area Coordinator (LAC), working for one of our Partners in the Community (partners) will be your main contact point for the NDIS.
In Western Australia, the partner delivering LAC services are:
- Mission Australia in the Central North Metro, South East Metro and North East Metro Service Areas.
- APM in the North Metro, Central South Metro, South Metro, South West, Great Southern and Inner Wheatbelt Services Areas.
Areas where partners do not deliver ECEI or LAC services
Some areas of WA do not have partners. This includes the Kimberley and Pilbara, Midwest-Gascoyne, Outer Wheatbelt and Goldfields and Esperance. If you live in one of these areas, someone from the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) will work with you to connect you to the NDIS or supports in your community.
