Our role

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) officially began in Queensland 1 July 2016 and will be fully implemented by July 2019. The NDIS is transforming the way people with disability access disability care and supports, and revolutionising the way disability supports are funded and delivered.

When the roll-out is completed in 2019, more than 90,000 Queenslanders with significant or profound disability will have choice and control over the support they receive. The NDIS is also bringing exciting opportunities for mainstream services and the broader community.

In 2012, the Queensland Government committed $868 million to be delivered in instalments between 2013 and 2019 to help Queensland prepare for and meet the challenges from this tremendous change to the way in which disability supports are currently provided.

The five year Queensland Disability Plan 2014-19: Enabling choices and opportunities (PDF), released in December 2013, sets out the Queensland Government’s commitment to the NDIS, and identifies priorities and strategies to help achieve a successful transition.
