ACT Disability Sector
With the transition to the NDIS the ACT Government has stepped down its funding to community organisations to deliver disability services. This funding has transferred to the NDIS to be passed on to NDIS participants, through their individual packages, so they can choose the supports and services they prefer.
In this new environment, the way service providers come together is changing and the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) will increasingly take on a market stewardship role. This will include monitoring and supporting the development of the NDIS market in the ACT.
The NDIA regularly posts useful information on its website: https://ndis.gov.au/providers/market-information-useful-links.html
National Disability Service (ACT) is funded by the Commonwealth NDIS Sector Development Fund until December 2016 to support the ACT disability sector to prepare for the NDIS. Find out more at: https://www.nds.org.au/events-and-training/ready4-the-ndis
