It was recently announced that a Queensland trial site for the NDIS will be launched in North Queensland in early 2016.

The Sector Readiness and Workforce Capacity Initiative was run by National Disability Services (NDS) and concluded on 30 June 2014.
The initiative provided a range of professional development opportunities, including both accredited and non-accredited training (targeted to the disability, child protection, homelessness and youth sectors) that was designed to prepare the sector for coming reforms, improve service delivery for clients and communities, and work towards a stronger disability and community services sector.
The Sector Readiness and Workforce Capacity initiative provides:
- Non-accredited training for the disability sector around preparing for self-directed support under Your Life Your Choice in readiness for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
- A Business development package including the organisational development toolkit, modules and resources.
Participant readiness initiative
Nine organisations have been chosen by the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services to support Queenslanders to understand the NDIS and make the most of the opportunities the NDIS will bring. They will be delivering workshops across Queensland throughout 2015.

Details of the workshops held by each organisation are found on the participant readiness initiative page.
