• Eligibility criteria;
  • Rules surrounding ‘reasonable and necessary supports’;
  • Enabling choice and control for people with disability.

A “bilateral agreement” will be developed. This agreement will determine how the rollout will occur and to ensure that the WA NDIS aligns with the rest of Australia.

Currently this means that eligible Participants who were due to transition to Federal NDIS from 1 January 2017 will still continue to do so. These will be people with disability living in the Local Government Areas (LGAs) of – the Shire of Northam, Shire of Toodyay, Shire of York, Shire of Chittering, Town of Bassendean and City of Bayswater.

Anyone not linked with DSC/similar programs who live within the existing NDIS areas or the new LGAs can test their eligibility for the Scheme now.
