It has just been announced that NDIS will become available in the Western Sydney and Nepean Blue Mountains districts from July 2016.

The Western Sydney district covers the local government areas of Auburn, The Hills, Blacktown, Holroyd and Parramatta. Nepean Blue Mountains district covers Hawkesbury, Penrith, Blue Mountains and Lithgow LGAs.

With so many people coming into the scheme in such a short time, it is important that there is a planned approach to how they access the NDIS.
