More support for people with disability in NT

The Turnbull Government will provide $14.8 million to fund Local Area Coordination (LAC) services and Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) services for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in the Darwin, Litchfield and Palmerston government areas.

The NDIS is expected to support more than 6,500 people in the Northern Territory and about 460,000 people nationally when it is fully implemented in 2020. The Scheme is also expected to boost the Northern Territory economy by $160 million, and create up to 1,325 new jobs in disability services in the Territory.
