Get ready for the NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will begin to roll out in Moonee Valley in October 2018.

It will change the way people with disability, their families and carers receive support.

It will give participants more control over how, when and where their support is delivered.

If you are an Australian citizen, permanent resident or hold a Protected Special Category Visa, are under the age of 65 and have a permanent and significant disability, the NDIS will affect you.

Take charge. Get informed. Be ready.

How do I find out more?

For more information or to find out if you may be eligible use the access checker on the NDIS website or call 1800 800 110.

Free information sessions

We are holding free information sessions to help people get ready for the NDIS.

These sessions are targeted to meet your specific needs, including sessions for carers, people with an intellectual disability or parents of young children.
