Empowering people with disability

As our State recovers stronger and fairer, we need to make sure every Victorian has the support – and independence – they deserve.

The Victorian Government is investing $1.6 billion to ensure an inclusive education for students with disability.

In addition to this investment, this Budget provides $12 million to support the new State Disability Plan.

This Budget also delivers $209 million to support Victorians who are not eligible for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Funding of $4.8 million extends the Intensive Support Team, which has already helped more than 1,300 Victorians with complex needs who have found difficulty in navigating the NDIS or receiving an appropriate plan.

Younger Victorians with disability who are ineligible for the NDIS will also be supported to maintain their independence, with another $42 million through our Home and Community Care Program for Younger People.

We are also committing $6.7 million for the Disability Worker Regulation Scheme to improve quality of care and service standards across the disability workforce.
