Special NDIS support for prisoners, homeless

Published

People living with a disability who are homeless, in jail, dealing with mental health issues or coming out of residential aged care will have access to a new NDIS pathway for people with “complex needs”.

It’s estimated up to 15 per cent of NDIS participants fit into this category.

The rollout of the new Complex Support Needs Pathway follows a 2017 NDIS review sparked by feedback from around 300 participants and providers.

The implementation of the pathway comes after the announcement in October of a new psychosocial disability stream for people with disability caused by severe and persistent mental health issues.
