The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) commenced rolling out in year one Districts on 1 July 2016. From 1 July 2018, all eligible people living in NSW are now able to access the Scheme.
FACS has developed a number of resources for NGO and FACS carers and casework staff. These resources outline the NDIS access, planning and review process, roles and responsibilities and where to go for further information. We’ve also developed a number of resources for children and young people that aim to support and involve them in their NDIS plan. You can find these tools by clicking into the related tabs above.
Given the dynamic nature of the current disability policy environment, these tools will be updated when required to reflect a changing NDIS model as the Scheme is implemented. We will continue to update the tools as information evolves and outcomes of agreements between the Commonwealth and the NSW Governments are solidified.
