Ozanam Industries is fully committed to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), which was launched in Western Sydney on 1 July, 2015.
Up to 2,000 people under the age of 18 will begin to receive support from the NDIS through individualised plans, from September 2015.
The NDIS will progressively roll out in NSW from July 2016. All eligible people will be able to access support from the NDIS by July 2018.
Although we are not involved in the NDIS launch sites, we are actively reviewing our systems and service delivery in preparation for the full NSW rollout. We are working hard to strengthen our knowledge and understanding of the NDIS to ensure we are ready, and look forward to continuing to deliver services and support to our employees well into the future.
The NDIS will provide people with disability the opportunity to:
- decide on a genuine and meaningful future of their choosing
- have greater levels of choice and control over their lives, with a focus on their needs, aspirations and goals
- actively take part in their community.
You may like to check out the NDIS website for more information on eligibility and where it is available.
We understand that our supported employees, their families and support staff, advocates and other people interested in our services may have questions about the NDIS and Ozanam Industries.
