NDIS: Supporting participants through severe weather in Queensland

The NDIS is closely monitoring the ongoing flooding and severe weather events in Queensland and northern New South Wales.

In an emergency, you should always call 000. For your own safety, please follow the advice from your local emergency services. Its priority is to support participants, their families and carers once they are out of immediate danger.

To ensure the NDIS can quickly provide support to any affected participants, it is encouraging people to contact the NDIS National Contact Centre on 1800 800 110, press “5” for assistance with flood related issues. The organisation is prioritising all calls from participants affected by the severe weather events.

If you need urgent repairs or replacement of Assistive Technology, the NDIS National Contact Centre can authorise funds over the phone. Find out more about urgent AT repairs.

All NDIS offices remain closed in Queensland and New South Wales. Learn more.
