The NDIS is now available across Queensland. As a result, from 1 July 2019 the Queensland Community Care Program (QCC) will be replaced by the Queensland Community Support Scheme (QCSS).
In preparation, many service providers have been assisting their eligible clients transitioning to the NDIS where they can access a wider range of supports that better suit their needs.
While many current QCC clients have already moved to the NDIS, a number of participants have yet to make an access request to the scheme, or are yet to receive their approved NDIS plan. For this reason, existing QCC clients at 30 June 2019 will continue to receive their services under the new QCSS and, if found eligible for the NDIS at a future point, or once a plan is approved, they will move to the NDIS.
