Forums to explain DisabilityCare Australia to South Australians
-Forums to explain DisabilityCare Australia to South Australians
From Monday, a number of information forums will be held across South Australia to provide both the public and disability service providers with details of the impending launch and implementation of DisabilityCare Australia (formerly the National Disability Insurance Scheme).
Disabilities Minister Tony Piccolo says the forums will provide important information for service providers on registration and other business processes while giving them the opportunity to meet with DisabilityCare Australia support staff.
"These forums provide a really good opportunity for the public and for service providers to have any questions answered about the rollout of this important initiative," Mr Piccolo said.
"DisabilityCare Australia will provide the 33,000 South Australians with disability the peace of mind that they will get the support they need, when they need it."
"The scheme is based on an individualised funding model which will provide people with disability, their family and carers with more choices about the care they require to suit their own individual needs.
"I encourage people working in the disability sector, people with disability, their family and carers to get along to one of these important forums so they are up to speed on the significant changes to disability funding that will occur with the rollout of DisabilityCare Australia."
The South Australian trial of DisabilityCare Australia will commence on July 1 this year for children aged 0 -14. The South Australian Government has committed to the full implementation of DisabilityCare Australia from 2018.
