NDIS Logo

General information about the NDIS in Western Australia

Following the Commonwealth trial implemented by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) and the WA NDIS trial implemented by the WA State Government, a Bilateral Agreement was signed in January 2017 stating that the NDIS would be implemented by the WA Government in WA.

The Commonwealth and WA Governments have now announced that the national NDIS (delivered by the NDIA) will be rolled out in Western Australia.  This means there will eventually be only one NDIS delivered by the NDIA across every state and territory of Australia.

From 1 July 2018, the NDIA will assume responsibility for the delivery of the NDIS in WA.  The NDIS will continue to roll out on a geographic basis and will be fully rolled out across Western Australia by 2020.

The NDIA and Western Australian Governments are committed to ensuring the transition process is managed carefully and supports participants, families and carers and providers.

WA NDIS Clients

People already taking part in the WA NDIS will transfer to the nationally-delivered NDIS in a phased approach from April 2018.  The Transfer of people from the WA NDIS will conclude by December 2018.  People transferring from the WA NDIS to the nationally delivered scheme will be contacted by the Western Australian government to advise them of the next steps they need to take.

New NDIS Participants

From 1 July 2018 the nationally-delivered NDIS will begin to be available to new participants based on where they live.  Visit geographic roll out in Western Australia page to find out where and when the NDIS will be available.

Existing NDIS participants

For existing NDIS participants nothing changes.  Current NDIS plans remain unchanged and any upcoming plan reviews will go ahead with the NDIA.

Getting started

For service providers who have not already registered with the NDIS the Provider Toolkit is a user-friendly online tool that takes providers through the seven steps of the Provider Pathway and includes step-by-step guides, videos, FAQs and interactive e-learning activities.

Office locations

The NDIS office in the Perth Hills area of Western Australia is open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday at 78-80 Railway Parade, Midland.
