Referrals to the Assessement and Referral Team have now closed. 

The temporary funding provided by the Commonwealth Government to deliver the Disability Connect and Outreach Program is coming to an end.

The Assessment and Referral Team team will continue to finalise work with all eligible client referrals that were submitted to the team prior to 31 March 2022. 

 

Where can you get help? 

The National Disability Insurance Agency directs all new queries about access to the National Disbaility Insurance Scheme to your local NDIS Partners in the Community who deliver local area coordination supports for eligible Queenslanders with disability.

Visit the NDIS website or call 1800 800 110 for details of the organisation in your area.

 

Capacity Building Opportunities 

We are committed to sharing our key ART learnings and have designed capacity building sessions to strengthen the capability of health professionals, the sector, Queensland Government employees, and community workers to better understand NDIS eligibility and access requirements.

 

 

Provide your feedback

Have you had help from ART to access the NDIS? Sharing feedback about the support you received helps us learn more about your experience. We would appreciate you answering a few short questions.

 

 

 

Important information about COVID-19 

It’s important that people with disability receive the supports they need during this difficult time. 

Much of the team's work is completed on the phone or online, but we will continue to work with you to find the best option. 

The Assessment and Referral Team (ART) has been assisting people with disability to apply for the NDIS. The free initiative has been made available through a collaboration with the Department of Seniors, Disability Services and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships and the Commonwealth Government.   

Capacity building opportunities for the sector

We are committed to sharing our key ART learnings and have designed capacity building sessions to strengthen the capability of health professionals, the sector, Government employees, and community workers to better understand NDIS eligibility and access requirements.

 

 

 

 

Cultural Acknowledgement

We pay our respects to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ancestors of this land, their spirits and their legacy. The foundations laid by these ancestors - our First Nations peoples - gives strength, inspiration and courage to current and future generations towards creating a better Queensland.

We walk together on our shared journey of reconciliation where all Queenslanders will be equal and the diversity of Aboriginal cultures and Torres Strait Islander cultures and communities across Queensland are fully recognised, respected and valued by all.
