NSW LABOR WELCOMES NDIS AGREEMENT

-->

NSW Labor today welcomed the signing of a bilateral agreement between the Commonwealth and NSW Government’s for the full roll-out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme was developed by the former Federal Labor Government to provide people with disability greater choice and certainty by providing them with individualised support packages. 

When fully implemented, the NDIS promises to improve the supports received by more than 140,000 people with disability in NSW.

“We look forward to examining the detail of the agreement signed today and continuing to work with people with disability, their families, carers and disability service providers to ensure that there is a successful transition to the NDIS in NSW.”
