In February 2017 the Commonwealth and State Government signed a bilateral agreement, outlining how the NDIS will operate in Western Australia. A bilateral is a joint agreement between two groups which has clear rules and guidelines. In this case, these guidelines outline how the NDIS will operate in WA.
The WA NDIS will:
Be delivered by a new WA NDIS authority which will be governed by a seven-member independent board
Lead by a Chair of the who will be appointed by the WA and Commonwealth governments
Provide choice and control to people living with disability

When will the NDIS be in my area?
The WA NDIS will take some time to roll out across the state. It’s important that you know when the WA NDIS will roll out in your area so that you are prepared and ready to develop your plan.
An overview and map of the WA NDIS Roll out can be found on the DSC website here.
