Jobs and services boost from NDIS rollout

PEOPLE living with a disability in the Yorke and Mid North region can now access the NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme).

Local government areas of Barunga West, Clare and Gilbert Valleys, Copper Coast, Goyder, Mount Remarkable, Orroroo Carrieton, Northern Areas, Peterborough, Port Pirie, Wakefield and Yorke Peninsula are the latest to be added to the NDIS.

The scheme is also delivering a significant boost for jobs in SA, with 6000 new jobs to be created in the disability sector, including up to 650 new full-time jobs in the Yorke Peninsula and Mid North areas.

Community-based not-for-profit organization, Clare Valley Enterprises, is one of those set for expansion following the rollout.
