NDIS in the Barwon area

The NDIS commenced in the Barwon area of Victoria on 1 July 2013 for people up to age 65 living in the Local Government Areas of the City of Greater Geelong, Colac Otway Shire, Surfcoast Shire and the Borough of Queenscliff.

Who can access the Scheme?

A person with an impairment that is likely to be permanent and the impairment makes it difficult to take part in everyday activities can access the Scheme. A person needs to meet disability or early intervention requirements, as well as age and residence requirements.

If you are an existing client of a disability service, the NDIA will contact you about transitioning into the Scheme. Existing national and state-based services and supports will continue until eligible people start their plan with the NDIS.
For more information, please visit Access Requirements.
