The NDIS is being introduced in stages, because it’s a big change and it is important to get it right and make it sustainable. Existing service users and new participants will enter the scheme progressively.

In Victoria, the NDIS will be rolled out across the state. People currently receiving support through the Victorian Government will move to the NDIS at different times depending on where they live and the type of support they receive. Access to a package of supports will be provided no earlier than 1 July 2016.

It is expected to take up to 12 months for eligible people with disability to enter the NDIS once roll out starts in an area. Existing Commonwealth and state-based services and supports will continue until eligible people start their plans with the NDIS.
