In November 2016, The Shire of Kalamunda Council resolved to transition its NDIS services to Rise network by 31 March 2017. The Shire has also since revoked its registration as an NDIS provider, effective 31 March 2017.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) commenced in the Perth Hills region in July 2014 for people with disability aged up to 65 living in the local government areas of Kalamunda, Swan and Mundaring. The Government has set up the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to manage the scheme and trial in Perth Hills.
More than 1200 people will be joining the NDIS in the expanded Perth Hills trial between January and June 2017. The Shire encourages everyone who may be eligible to find out about the NDIS and to make a request for access if they are not already linked to Local Coordinators and other Disability Services Commission services.
In January 2017, Commonwealth and WA Governments announced they would be rolling out a nationally consistent but state-run NDIS from 1 July 2017. In the meantime, there is an existing agreement to continue the NDIS trials in WA until the end of June 2017 . This means that people meeting the NDIS access requirements who live in the local government area of Kalamunda can come into the scheme and receive support.
