NDIS in the ACT
The NDIS began in the ACT on 1 July 2014. The Scheme will roll out nationally from 1 July 2016.
The NDIS is reaching the last quarter of its ‘ages in stages’ process where eligible people for the NDIS will begin transitioning to participate in the NDIS at different times.
The timing is based either on your:
- Date of birth (for adults); or
- Academic year (for school-age children).
If you are in a group home and one person in your group home is eligible to transition to the NDIS, then you will all transition to the NDIS together over 2 years (2014 to 2016).
Are you ready to transition to the NDIS?
If you have been told you can participate in the NDIS or believe you may be eligible for the NDIS, you must start planning for your transition now by completing an Access Request Form.
Go to the NDIS Access requirements Information page to find out more.
Community Options can assist you with this process.
