NATIONAL DISABILITY INSURANCE SCHEME —
275. Hon ROBIN SCOTT to the Minister for Disability Services:
I refer to the 1 July 2018 National Disability Insurance
Scheme rollout in Western Australia, which will see the National Disability
Insurance Agency assuming responsibility for the delivery of the scheme in WA.
(1) Given that
other state jurisdictions are providing sector transitional funding support,
will the state government acknowledge that the sector requires support and
follow the lead of other states?
(2) If no to (1), why not?
(3) If yes to (1), what additional sector transitional
funding will be provided?
Hon STEPHEN DAWSON
I thank the
honourable member for some notice of this question.
The state government acknowledges that the disability service sector will
require support to facilitate a successful transition to the NDIS.
(2) Not applicable.
(3) This matter is
currently under consideration by the government.
