Community Forums

NDIS community forums are currently happening across Victoria.

Community forums are a place where people with a disability and their families can hear about how the NDIS will work, get access to information about the roll out of the NDIS in their local area, and ask any questions they may have.

To date community forums have been held in: Shepparton, Greater Dandenong, Banyule, Craigieburn, Warrnambool, Frankston, South Morang, Ballarat, Wangaratta, Darebin, Preston and Bendigo.

More details on upcoming community forums will be published here as information is available.

Working with the NDIS: Provider Information Workshops

The NDIA is continuing to run its core information session for providers.

This core session is being repeated around Victoria, covering the NDIS portal, pricing and payment arrangements, service bookings, NDIA Terms of Business, quality and safeguards and overall market development. An additional 'specialist workshop' will proceed each core session.

For full details and to register, visit the events page of the NDIS website.

Rollout dates

The NDIS is being introduced in stages. It 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.
