Roll-out of the NDIS has started in Tasmania.
By July 2019 lots of Tasmanians with disability will be part of the scheme.
The NDIS will help people reach their goals.
It will help people:
All the community will have to be more accessible for people with disability.
This means that people with disability can take part – just like everyone else.
They should be able to access buildings.
Information should be easy to understand.
There are many services that are run by the Tasmanian Government now.
Like transport and some services in schools.
In the future people will get these services through the NDIS.
This will take some time to get used to.
There are going to be changes in aged care and mental health just like the NDIS.
People who use these services will have more choice and control.
This means that people will be funded and can choose their own services.
People can choose the support that is right for them.
The Australian Government is also changing carer services.
They will start a Carer Gateway.
The Carer Gateway will make it easier for Carers to find information, services and support.
There will be a national phone service and website.
Uber and Airbnb started overseas.
It is now in Tasmania.
Uber is a new type of taxi service.
Private people use their own cars and charge you money.
Airbnb is a new type of accommodation.
Private people hire out their own accommodation and charge money.
Governments must make sure that the new services work well for all members of the community including people with disability.
The Tasmanian Government is making some big changes that may be important for people with disability.
You can find out more about these changes on the flyer called
How can we do even better.
