Kempsey Regional Support Integrates with Ability Options
Leading National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provider Ability Options has announced Kempsey Regional Support (KRS) has integrated with its organisation.
CEO of Ability Options Mr Fred Van Steel confirmed the integration following a meeting with the Kempsey Regional Support Committee and Members in Kempsey.
The Mid North Coast will transition to the NDIS from July 1, 2017 with an estimated 5,800 people in the area to be accessing their supports through the NDIS by 30 June 2019. This figure includes an estimated 2,700 eligible participants who will be new to funding.
The NDIS gives people with disability, their families and carers a chance to advocate for supports that are aligned with their goals, offering people with disability choice and control over their supports.
Mr. Gary Phillips, Manager Kempsey Regional Support, welcomed the integration into Ability Options. “Our integration with Ability Options will allow Kempsey Regional Support to tap into Ability Options proven NDIS experience and vast resources allowing for the uptake of new ideas, technology, reporting and the eventual expansion of our services to the local community.”
“The landscape of the disability sector is changing dramatically and the integration will ensure that Kempsey Regional Support is ready to support Participants through the transition to the new NDIS funding model as seamlessly as possible.”
