2.4 When is the NDIS coming to my area?
Currently the NDIS is operating in many sites across Australia and it will continue to rollout in new locations as agreements with state and territory governments come into effect. The easiest way to find out where the NDIS is operating is to access the NDIS website homepage and search the ‘NDIS in your area’ section.
If you are operating in an area that is not currently part of the NDIS, you can use this same section of the website – ‘NDIS in your area’ – to find out when the NDIS will be rolling out in your area. This staged approach to the NDIS introduction is designed to ensure a smooth and sustainable transition from the existing funding arrangements that operate in each state and territory to the new arrangements under the NDIS.
During this transition period, people with disability will continue receiving services and support from existing disability support services until the NDIS arrives in their area. Significant pre-planning work happens in locations six months prior to the NDIS starting including participant and provider information sessions run by the NDIA.
Further information about current arrangements and rollout information in each state and territory can be found on the NDIS website:
