The Australia-wide National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is administered by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), an independent Commonwealth statutory agency. The NDIS is currently rolling out across Western Australia on a geographic basis and will be fully rolled out by 1 July 2020.
The Department of Communities (Communities) in WA is responsible for ensuring that NDIS providers comply with State quality and safeguarding requirements.
Service providers wishing to provide NDIS supports must register as a service provider with NDIA and the Department (www.ndis.gov.au > Providers).
Communities will be inviting organisations that wish to deliver services to NDIS participants to apply for registration on the Disability Services Provider Panel (DSPP) from 1 July 2020.
Existing DSPP providers may also apply to expand the services they currently deliver or apply to operate in new regions.
For information on applying, contact the registration team at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0435 603 691.
