The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is growing to make sure we are in a position to deliver a quality National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) for people with disability into the future.
The NDIA is a national organisation, and will continue to have local senior leadership in all states and territories, including the Northern Territory.
The NDIS is expected to support more than 6,500 people in the Northern Territory and about 460,000 people nationally when it is fully implemented in 2020. The Scheme is also expected to boost the Northern Territory economy by $160 million, and create up to 1,325 new jobs in disability services in the Territory.
The NDIA also creating a new leadership position focused on supporting people with disability in rural and remote locations.
The NDIA remains committed to delivering a consistent and quality experience for participants, no matter where they live.
