Funding Support and Advocacy
The WA State Government has announced WA will join the federally-run National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
Starting July 1, 2018, the national scheme will replace the WA-based scheme. All WA NDIS participants will transfer to the national system in stages on a geographic basis and will be fully rolled out across WA by 2020.
Whether you are just starting your NDIS journey or looking for transition help from the State scheme, give us a call today.
