Advocacy South West welcomes the announcement by the McGowan Government that WA will be signing up to the federal NDIS.

The announcement provides much needed certainty for people with disabilities, their families and carers who have experienced much anxiety waiting for a decision.  As part of the National Scheme Western Australians will now be assured that they are part of a fully national scheme that is consistent across Australia.

 

People currently in WA administered NDIS will have their plan transferred to the federal scheme from April 2018.
