The National Disability Insurance Scheme will become available in the South Eastern Sydney district from July 2017.

•personal care and support
•access to the community
•therapy services
•essential equipment

Current clients of Sutherland Shire and St George services will transition with help from their existing providers. For more information: http://ndis.nsw.gov.au/ready-for-ndis/ndis-rollout/south-eastern-sydney/
