The NSW Government is committed to a person centred disability system, one that meets the individual needs and goals of people with a disability and supports them to realise their potential. 

On 6 December 2012 the NSW and Australian Governments reached agreement that fully establishes the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) across NSW from July 2018. The agreement ensures that all people with disability across NSW will have access to a scheme, based on insurance principles, that guarantees lifetime coverage for the cost of reasonable and necessary care and support. 

Work towards the NDIS sits alongside the NSW Government’s disability reform initiative Stronger Together 2. In line with the NDIS and to support reforms under Stronger Together 2, new disability legislation will be developed for NSW. 

To inform the development of new disability legislation, we are interested in hearing from as many people and groups as possible and welcome all contributions. There are several ways you can contribute, through either a face to face consultation session or written feedback.  Further information can be obtained from www.adhc.nsw.gov.au/dsareview.
