July 2018 represents a significant milestone for people with disability, their families and their carer’s, with the NDIS now available to all eligible people with a disability in NSW.
Baulkham Hills State Liberal MP David Elliott said the NDIS ensures people with disability have the support they need to engage with and contribute to Baulkham Hills.
“Every person living in Baulkham Hills can have peace of mind that if they or a loved one has or acquires a permanent disability they will receive the support they need,” Mr Elliott said.
Minister for Disability Services Ray Williams announced the NSW Liberal & National Government is the first State to transition into the Scheme.
“The NDIS is the largest social reform in a generation and now any person in NSW who is eligible for the NDIS can join the Scheme, even if they haven’t previously received support,” Mr Williams said.
More than 85,000 people with disability in NSW are now benefiting from the NDIS.
“The NSW Government is contributing more than $3.2 billion to the scheme, and has delivered on our commitment to the NDIS,” Mr Williams said.
The NSW Government will continue to ensure all people with a disability in NSW have access to mainstream services, under the National Disability Strategy and NSW Disability Inclusion Act.
