The NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) will change disability services and the way they are purchased, giving more choice to the person with a disability. It aims to help people with a disability live and enjoy their life now and as their life changes.
The new scheme is rolling out in stages and is already operating in other regions in Victoria. The planned rollout for the southern region is as follows:
April 2018: Bayside, Frankston, Glen Eira, Kingston, Mornington Peninsula, Port Phillip & Stonnington
September 2018: Casey, Cardinia & Greater Dandenong
