The Commonwealth and Queensland Governments announced on May 26 the commencement of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will be brought forward in Ipswich, Bundaberg and Rockhampton.
The new dates are now:
- May 29 for the Ipswich region
- Sept 1 for the Bundaberg region
- November 1 for the Rockhampton region
Visit the NDIS website to view the complete list of dates
This means that people in these areas who already receive Disability Services state funding and are ready for the NDIS, will now have a shorter wait period to access the NDIS.
Please note that you don’t need to rush your NDIS Plan through for the new commencement dates. We also advise you not to accept a planning meeting with the NDIA unless you are prepared.
At Blue Care we are ready to work with you to make the most of the NDIS. We regularly organise free workshops where you can ask our experts about the NDIS process and get help filling in your Blue Care Pre-Planning booklet. Visit our NDIS Workshops page to find out more information.
