History Of NDIS(National Disability Insurance Scheme) Australia

History of NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) started in Australia in 2013. It was a big change in how people with disabilities get support. Before the NDIS, there were problems with how support was given to people with disabilities. The NDIS was made to fix these problems.

The idea for the NDIS came from discussions that happened over many years. In 2007, there was a Senate inquiry into disability services. This inquiry looked at how disability services were funded and run. It suggested that there were issues with how things were being done.

In 2008, there was a big meeting called the Australia 2020 Summit. At this meeting, some people talked about the need for a better way to support people with disabilities. They said that the current system wasn’t working well and that there needed to be a new plan. They suggested creating something like an insurance scheme for disabilities. This would make sure that people with disabilities and their families get the help they need.

But the government didn’t immediately agree to this idea. It took some time for the government to decide to make the NDIS. Finally, in 2013, the NDIS was officially started. It began with trials in different parts of Australia. By 2020, the NDIS was fully rolled out across the country. This means that people with disabilities in every part of Australia could get support from the NDIS.

Now, the NDIS helps over half a million adults and children with disabilities. Many of them are getting support for the first time. The NDIS is meant to make sure that people with disabilities get the help they need to live their lives the way they want.


Well, the NDIS is a big change in how disability support works in Australia. It came from years of talking about the problems with the old system and finding ways to make things better. Now, more people with disabilities are getting the support they need to live their lives fully.
