The early transition to the NDIS for around 2000 children and young people with disability in the Nepean Blue Mountains district has officially started.

This important NDIS milestone was marked by the opening of the NDIS shopfront in Penrith on Wednesday 1 July 2015.

Minister for Disability Services, John Ajaka joined the Federal Member for Lindsay, Fiona Scott, Deputy Secretary Ageing Disability and Home Care, Jim Longley, CEO of the NDIA, David Bowen, and local Western Sydney mother, Erin Kester and her family to officially open the NDIA shopfront. The shopfront will be the local hub for the NDIA, where young people with disability, their families and carers can go to learn more and get ready for the move to the NDIS.

“We are incredibly proud to be delivering the NDIS ahead of schedule and particularly pleased to be doing so in greater Western Sydney,” Minister Ajaka said.

“It has meant there are 2,000 children and young people who will get the support they need to help achieve their goals and aspirations, one year earlier than originally planned. We have kicked off today, and there are many players getting behind the NDIS here,” he said.

Linkages and capacity building (ILC) building supports are being made available from the start of July 2015 in the Nepean Blue Mountains district. Participants will be able to access individualised package supports from 1 September 2015.
