The NDIS provides eligible people a flexible, whole-of-life approach to the support needed to pursue their goals and aspirations and participate in daily life.

  1. What

The Commonwealth and Queensland governments have agreed on how the NDIS will be rolled out across Queensland. In Queensland, the NDIS will be operating state-wide by July 2019. The NDIS already has early transition sites in Townsville and Charters Towers for children and young people (0-18 years) and all eligible people from Palm Island.

  1. When

The NDIS is a big change and will be progressively rolled out in Queensland over three years from 1 July 2016. People will move to the NDIS at different times depending on where they live. The NDIS will be operating state-wide by July 2019.
