New Possibilities, New Flexibility, New Choices
The National Disability Insurance Scheme and individualised funding options will profoundly change the way people with a disability and their family access and manage their care and lifestyle services.
The NDIS promises better outcomes and more freedom for individuals to be empowered and in control.
Just Better Care is an approved NDIS provider, and has already helped many Australians across the NDIS trial sites access new levels of service and take control of their support choices. Together with Just Better Care, the NDIS has enabled people to live their lives to the fullest.
Under the previous Commonwealth funding model, organisations received disability support funding from the government and decided how it would be used. Now with the NDIS, funding is allocated to individuals who have more choice how it is used. The National Disability Insurance Scheme commenced in July 2013, firstly in trail sites in Tasmania for young people aged 15-24, in South Australia for children aged under 14 (on 1 July 2015), and in the Barwon area of Victoria and the Hunter region in New South Wales for people up to age 65.
From 1 July 2014, the NDIS started in the ACT, NT (Barkley region), and in the Perth Hills area of Western Australia.
From 1 July 2015, the NDIS commenced rolling out across the Nepean Blue Mountains area in New South Wales for children and young people aged under 18.
The complete roll-out of the full scheme in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, the ACT and the Northern Territory will commence progressively from July 2016.
