As of the 8th of May 2013, Premier Campbell Newman signed a joint document with the Prime Minister to include Queensland in Disability Care Australia- the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). This historic agreement will transform the way disability services and care are both accessed and provided in Queensland, let alone provide the largest boost to disability funding in the State.
How will this affect you?
In late 2012 the Queensland Government committed an additional $868 million over the next 5 years towards disability services. This additional funding was on top of Queensland’s record investment of $959 million announced in the 2012-2013 State Budget.
The Government indicates that when the NDIS comes into place that it will provide all illegible Queenslanders with access to a scheme that guarantees lifetime coverage for the costs of reasonable and necessary disability care and support. It will also give Queenslanders with a disability a choice and control over their disability supports, including their specialist, mainstream and community support.
If you don’t know the WHO, WHERE, HOW OFTEN and WHAT of your disability management plan, you will be left feeling helpless when this resource is distributed to you. My concern here is if families are not prepared and educated that the funding that is available:
The Government have indicated that they will be working with non-government sector to do what they can to prepare the sector, and Queenslanders with disability, for a transition to a fully operational NDIS from 1 July 2019.
