ADHC NDIS policy statements
ADHC is working closely with the National Disability Insurance Agency to support implementation of the NSW launch of the NDIS in the Hunter from July 2013. Consistent with our joint priorities, ADHC is implementing a range of initiatives to support the launch including:
- information and pathways for existing ADHC clients and other people with disability in the launch area who wish to access the NDIS
- Ability Links NSW to deliver local area coordination in the Hunter region
- detailed planning with service providers and the National Disability Insurance Agency to support the phased transition of existing clients of NSW disability services in the three Local Government Areas included in the launch
- development of safeguard mechanisms, including a complaints management tools and training for service providers on the requirements of the NSW quality framework
- adjustments to Stronger Together 2 service growth in the Hunter region to support the launch.
Significant planning and development is also underway to design, model and implement the necessary building blocks to support the full NSW transition to the NDIS from July 2016.
The following ADHC policy statements have been developed to provide people with disability, families, service providers and other stakeholders, with information about NSW implementation priorities, including co-operative arrangements with the National Disability Insurance Agency.
