National Disability Insurance Scheme

MIFNQ will be supporting people who have access to the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

The NDIS will start in Queensland from 1 July 2016 and be fully implemented by 1 July 2019, with around 97,000 Queenslanders eligible to receive support through the scheme.

The NDIS will be administered by the National Disability Insurance Agency. Under an NDIS people with a disability will have choice and control over their disability support, including choosing who and how these supports are provided and managed.

There are varied forms of support and access that are available to people, carers and families who are affected by mental illness, for further information you can contact MIFNQ on (07) 4725 3664 or access the NDIS websites listed below:
