National Disability Insurance Scheme launch sites: projection of the number of young people in Residential Aged Care

2 Oct 2013
Description

The launch of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) on 1 July 2013, heralded the start of a new era for people with disability in Australia.

PricewaterhouseCoopers and the Summer Foundation have been collaborating to undertake a projection of people aged under 65 living in aged care nursing homes in the three NDIS launch sites that are targeting people in this group: Australian Capital Territory, the Hunter region of New South Wales and the Barwon region of Victoria.

The Report estimates that although the NDIS will have been operational in the NDIS launch sites for three years, there will be an additional 40 young people living in nursing homes in these launch sites by June 2016. The report provides an estimate of the unmet needs and resources required for housing and support in the NDIS launch sites.
