The NDIS is a new way of providing people with disability across Australia with support to meet their disability needs and link with their community.

The scheme supports people with a permanent and significant disability to take part in everyday activities. This includes people whose disability is an intellectual, sensory or physical impairment, or a psychiatric condition.

Rollout dates

From 1 July 2017, the NDIS will roll out to Ipswich, Lockyer, Scenic Rim and Somerset. (May 2017 for users of existing Queensland Government disability services). This covers the following Local Government Areas:

  • Ipswich
  • Lockyer Valley
  • Scenic Rim
  • Somerset.

People with disability in these local government areas can submit a request to access the NDIS now.

Existing users of Queensland Government funded disability services in this area should move to the NDIS before 31 December 2017. At this time responsibility for providing disability services including funding will move from the Queensland Government to the NDIS.

Applicants must be under 65 years old on the date their request to access the NDIS is received by the National Disability Insurance Agency.
