The NSW Public Guardian and the
National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing support for people with disability, their families and carers in Australia. The NDIS will provide all Australians under the age of 65 with a permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to live an ordinary life. It is an important change to how funding for disability support is provided to many people who are appointed the Public Guardian or who have a private or enduring guardian.
From 1 July 2016 the NDIS will begin to
roll out to other areas of NSW
