An NDIS full-scheme agreement has now been signed by the Queensland and Commonwealth Governments, taking effect from 1 July 2020.

While all regions in Queensland have transitioned to the NDIS at the end of June, both the Commonwealth and Queensland Governments recognise that participant numbers during the transition period in Queensland have fallen short of meeting the bilaterally-agreed participant estimate of 91,217.

It is estimated that more than 50,000 people with disability have an NDIS plan in Queensland with an additional 10,000 actively in the process of confirming their eligibility or having their plan developed.
