NDIS OT Kalgoorlie is an NDIS Outreach and Training service. We are part of NDIA Western Australia’s NDIS Local Area Coordination (LAC) team that provides NDIS information, supports NDIA staff in their work to implement the NDIS plan for people with disabilities in Western Australia, and delivers training on the NDIS.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), launched by Prime Minister Julia Gillard on July 1st, 2013, has been making headlines across Australia since its inception. The NDIA website states: “the scheme will provide Australians living with permanent and significant disabilities aged 18 years or more who meet certain eligibility criteria with up to $24-a-day to purchase supports and services that will assist them in participating in the community on an equal basis with other members of the Australian community”.
The NDIS is currently being rolled out across Australia, including Western Australia. Kalgoorlie-Boulder was one of the first regions to have its NDIS plan approved by NDIA.
