Rollout in Victoria

The NDIS is being rolled out progressively in Victoria over a three-year period between July 2016 and 2019. By the time the scheme is fully operational, around 105,000 people in Victoria are expected to receive support as part of the NDIS.

The NDIS in Victoria began in Barwon in 2013, the North Eastern Melbourne Area on 1 July 2016 and Central Highlands on 1 January 2017.

The staged rollout of the NDIS will give current and new disability service providers time to prepare for the new scheme. This will ensure a smoother transition for people with a disability and their families and carers.

The staged roll out of the NDIS in Victoria is based on a range of factors including:

  • the number and needs of adults and children with a disability (existing Victorian disability clients) living in the area
  • the time to get the right support and services in place
  • national and local experience to date with NDIS trials.

 

Here's when the NDIS will be coming to your area.

By July 2019, it is estimated that 105,000 Victorians will have transitioned to the scheme. This includes approximately 76,000 clients from the existing Victorian specialist disability and mainstream systems. With time, these systems will be replaced by the NDIS.
