The Western Australian Government has finally announced its intention to join the rest of the country in the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
This is wonderful news for the many Western Australians with disability who will become participants, as well as the many advocates and carers who have long campaigned to be a part of the Federal Scheme.

DSC wholeheartedly welcomes this announcement and congratulates the many people who have worked so hard to make this happen.
And to WA - welcome to one of the greatest changes in our country's history. Buckle up.
