The NDIS is operating state-wide

The NDIS will be rolled out by district. To find out which district you are in and when you will transition, visit ndis.gov.au/about-us/our-sites/nsw

The first thing I would like to say to other families that are about to go through the NDIS is relax and prepare. I made myself sick with worry prior to starting NDIS. I spent countless hours researching online and experienced feelings of confusion, panic and fear…Now we are a year in and I realise it was unnecessary. This is in part to working with Cerebral Palsy Alliance, attending the information session and the preparation support.
