National Disability Insurance Agency (SA Engagement Team)
The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is an independent statutory agency. Our role is to implement the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), which will support a better life for hundreds of thousands of Australians with a significant and permanent disability and their families and carers. The NDIS will mean peace of mind for every Australian - for anyone who has, or might acquire, a disability.
Our priority is to ensure people with disability continue to get the support they need. The changes that are required to existing disability support systems are significant. Arrangements are being made to ensure the scheme can be introduced gradually, ensuring a smooth transition for people with disability and support providers.
The first stage of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in South Australia began on 1 July 2013 for children aged 13 years and under.
From 1 February 2016 the NDIS will begin to be rolled out in full. The NDIS will be made available progressively across the state over the next two years.
By July 2018, it is estimated that around 26,000 people will access the NDIS, including around 17,000 people from the existing South Australian specialist disability system. The agreement provides for another 6,500 people who are not currently receiving disability services to enter from July 2018 onwards.
