Structure, organisations and key people
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will provide reasonable and necessary lifetime support for people with permanent and significant disability. It is a cross jurisdictional reform to be delivered by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), which is a Commonwealth statutory agency established under the Commonwealth Authorities and Companies Act 1997 (CAC Act).
The NDIS was launched in four jurisdictions on 1 July 2013, with a further three starting on 1 July 2014 and later rolling out to provide coverage across Australia.
