Eligible NDIS providers in New South Wales and the Northern Territory will join those in Victoria in being able to claim a one-off payment from the NDIA for support workers to receive their COVID-19 vaccination.
Minister for Families and Social Services, Paul Fletcher today announced the NDIS full scheme agreement for the NT – a significant milestone for the rollout of the NDIS across Australia.
The NDIA would like to reassure people with disability in the Northern Territory, their families and carers that any person eligible for the NDIS will continue to receive the reasonable and necessary supports they need.
Territorians with a disability, their carers and providers now have a single, central and accessible NDIS office in Darwin.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) commences in the Barkly on 1 July, giving local people with disability access to tailored support.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will host its first Northern Territory community forums this month as part of preparations for the scheme’s launch in the Barkly region from 1 July.
