When will NDIS be coming to the Gold Coast?

The NDIS is scheduled to roll out to the Gold Coast Community from 1st July 2018. PIR is in the process of being integrated into the NDIS. This will be occurring as each Local government area is transitioned into the NDIS.

Am I eligible for NDIS?

You PIR Facilitator will be have discussions with you about your eligibility for NDIS and how PIR may assist you.
For more information on the eligibility criteria, contact your Facilitator or check out the NDIS website:

What is the process for applying for an NDIS package?

If you decide to apply for the NDIS, your Facilitator will walk you through the steps most relevant for you. As each package is unique to the individual, there are a number of items required to be completed before you can request access.

PIR Gold Coast have worked with other QLD regions to assess which documents are required to support your Request for Access application. Below you will find a list of some of the documentation which is considered valuable when seeking access to the NDIS. Your Facilitator can assist or chat to you about how you can best obtain these records:

  • GP Diagnostic Letter
  • Psychiatric and/or Psychologist Report
  • Occupational Therapy (OT) Function Impact Report
  • Hospitalisation Records (if applicable)

What happens after I Request Access to the NDIS?

Below is a diagram of the steps involved in the process for applying for the NDIS. If you have any questions, feel free to contact your Facilitator or send us an enquiry here, and we will try our best to assist you.

What if I am a past participant of PIR? Am I still eligible to apply?

Yes! We will be holding information sessions in 2018 to help you prepare your documentation to apply for a package. If you have any specific questions regarding your access to PIR support during the transition, please contact us here or you can email us at [email protected].
