A Brief History of the NDIS – Timeline
Friday, 30th June 2017 at 9:50 am

The National Disability Insurance Scheme is Australia’s biggest social policy project since Medicare. As we reach the one year milestone since the national rollout began, Pro Bono News looks back at some of the key events that have lead to the NDIS as it is today.
