Focus ACT is a NDIS Registered Service Provider and we are currently working with individuals and their families to transition to the National Insurance Disability Scheme (NDIS). The Scheme began on 1 July 2014 and will have full coverage across the ACT by July 2016.
In the ACT, participants will start accessing the Scheme based on an ‘ages and stages’ approach. This means that adults with disability will enter the NDIS according to their date of birth. Also, when a person in shared accommodation accesses the scheme, other residents in that home may become eligible.
At present we are meeting with participants and families who will transition in the first stage. We are providing participants with a detailed summary of their current supports mapped against the new ‘clusters’ under the NDIS.
If you are eligible for the NDIS and would like assistance, Focus is able to provide support for you to navigate this process at no expense to you.
