Rollout Regions in QLD

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will progressively roll out across Queensland over a three year period.

The NDIS is being introduced in stages, because it’s a big change and it is important to get it right and make it sustainable. Existing service users and new participants will enter the NDIS progressively.

In Queensland, the NDIS will be rolled out geographically. People will move to the NDIS at different times depending on where they live.
