Preparing for the NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will be fully implemented by 30 June 2019. When the roll-out is completed, many Queenslanders with significant or profound disability will have choice and control over the support they receive.

In 2012, the Queensland Government committed $868 million to be delivered in instalments between 2013 and 2019 to help Queensland prepare for and meet the challenges from this tremendous change to the way in which disability supports are currently provided.  As an approved Host Provider, CFN can assist you in the transition towards NDIS.  Click the link below ‘Preparing Queensland for the National Disability Insurance Scheme’ to learn more.

As of July 2014, the Department of Communities (Disability Service) has funded a Participant Readiness Project.  Pave the Way a project within the Mamre Association will assist Queenslanders with disabilities, their families and carers in the North Coast, North Queensland and Far North Queensland regions to prepare for the roll out in July 2016 of the National Disability Insurance Scheme.  Click the link below to learn more about what this project can offer to you.
