Parliament: 40 Session: 1
Answered on 12 April 2018

NATIONAL DISABILITY INSURANCE SCHEME — TRANSITION

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 replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of this question.

(1) 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.
