The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has been described as the biggest social reform since the introduction of Medicare in the 1970s. The NDIS is currently being rolled out across NSW and Australia, and will be fully operational in NSW by July 2018. This Issues Backgrounder provides a collection of key sources on the NDIS including information and reports published by the National Disability Insurance Agency, government departments, statutory bodies, and parliamentary committees. It also includes references to commentary from the media, academics and non-government organisations. Links are provided to the full text of sources. For copyright reasons, some linked items are only available to Members of Parliament.
