WHAT IS THE NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the way support is provided to Australians living with disability, their families and carers.
The NDIS provides reasonable and necessary supports for eligible people under 65 years of age with a permanent and significant disability. These supports are to help people with their day to day needs, as well as build capacity to achieve their goals in life whether at home, in the community or at work.
The NDIS is an insurance scheme so aims to support people with disability early to improve their outcomes later in life.

WHAT IS HAPPENING IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA?
In Western Australia, two versions of the NDIS have been operating since July 2014, the State Government administered WA NDIS and the nationally delivered NDIS through the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).
In December 2017, the Australian and Western Australian Governments agreed to WA joining the nationally delivered NDIS. So this means, from Sunday, 1 July 2018 the NDIA will be responsible for delivering the NDIS in WA. The NDIS will continue to be implemented on a geographical basis and fully rolled out across WA by 2020.
