Supporting people with Younger Onset Dementia in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is currently rolling out in Victoria. You can find if the NDIS is available in your area or learn when it is expected to roll out in your location here: NDIS roll out timeline.
Younger onset dementia key workers can help you navigate the NDIS and assist you in preparing for your first NDIS planning session. They can also talk to you about younger onset dementia key worker services they can potentially provide to you as part of your individual NDIS plan.
Contacting a younger onset dementia key worker about the NDIS

If you are not currently participating in the program, the best way to access the Younger Onset Dementia Key Worker Program is to call the National Dementia Helpline on 1800 100 500.
