The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) was launched in July 2013, following years of conversations about the need for a serious reform of disability services in Australia. Under the National Disability Insurance Scheme, families and carers will have access to the help they need to support people with disability so they can participate in a life filled with community and employment opportunities.
