The Victorian and Commonwealth Governments have announced a $15 million Worker Mobility Reduction Payment initiative. The initiative will enable registered NDIS providers to reduce the movement of support workers between residential disability facilities where possible, to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.
The Agency and NDIS Quality and Safeguard Commission (NDIS Commission) have jointly released an open letter to all Victorian participants, their families and carers.
Minister for the National Disability Insurance Scheme, Stuart Robert, announced temporary changes to funding arrangements to allow NDIS participants in Victoria and New South Wales to claim the cost of personal protective equipment (PPE), including masks.
Victoria-based NDIS Partners in the Community Link Health and Community (Link) and Latrobe Community Health Service (LCHS) have decided to merge. The NDIA is working closely with both organisations to ensure continuity of service for children and families living in these areas.
On Tuesday 30 June, the Victorian Premier announced stay at home orders will be in place across a number of Melbourne suburbs from 11:59pm Wednesday 1 July. Current and potential participants in these areas can contact us by phone, email or webchat.
NDIA staff are joining the Department of Human Services Mobile Service Centres and Mobile Service Teams being deployed in bushfire affected areas throughout NSW and Victoria. NDIA staff will be available to discuss any additional support needs with participants, their families and carers. See where they are located today.
