Territorians with a disability, their carers and providers now have a single, central and accessible National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) office in Darwin.
The new office, located on Harry Chan Avenue, Darwin, was officially opened today by Chairman of the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), Dr Helen Nugent AO.
Joining Dr Nugent at the opening was fellow NDIA Board Member, Mr John Langoulant AO and representatives of the Northern Territory Government.
Minister for Families and Social Services, Paul Fletcher, said the new office will not only allow the NDIA to work closely with people with disability in the Northern Territory, it will also play a key role in delivering the NDIS to rural and remote communities spanning several states.
