National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Implementation

On 12 December 2017, the Commonwealth and Western Australian governments agreed that WA will join the nationally delivered National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). This announcement replaces the previous agreement signed in January 2017 for Western Australia to administer the NDIS.

Joint media statement - Western Australia to join the nationally delivered National Disability Insurance Scheme

From 1 July 2018, the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) will assume responsibility for the delivery of the NDIS in Western Australia. The NDIS will continue to be implemented on a geographic basis by NDIA and will be fully rolled out across WA by 2020. All current participants in the WA NDIS will transfer to the nationally delivered Scheme from April 2018 until 31 December 2018.

The Department of Education fully supports stronger links with the disability sector and improved educational outcomes for students with disability. The Department of Education is working collaboratively with the Disability Services Commission and the National Disability Insurance Agency to implement the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

At the core of the scheme is a focus on individualised funding support for people with disability. It is expected that there will be an improved interface between families, support services and schools and the development of approaches that align interventions and supports in the home and community as well as with school programs.
