    How do I access the NDIS?

    If you are already receiving disability support services, you will be contacted by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) as the NDIS rolls out in the City of Wyndham. 

    If you are not currently receiving any disability supports, but wish to join the scheme, contact the NDIA and ask to complete an Access Request Form. You can apply to access the scheme from April 2018. 

    Once you have registered, the NDIA will work with you to develop a plan which focuses on your goals and supports required to achieve these goals. Some plans might be developed over the phone but anyone can request a face to face planning session. 

    How do I make a complaint or appeal a decision?

    There are a number of resources you can access if you are not satisfied with the NDIA processes. 

    What will happen to the Council services I currently receive?

    If you are eligible for the NDIS and you currently receive services through Council you will continue to receive these services until your NDIS plan is implemented.
