Specialist supports for school leavers

Support is available to help young people with disability move from school to adult life. Support options available will depend on where you live and when your area transitions to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

The NDIS is progressively rolling out across Queensland between 2016 and 2019.

Find out when the NDIS starts in your area.

My Future: My Life

My Future: My Life is available while you are still at school to help you plan for your life after school by examining your strengths, interests and potential options to reach your goals.

This program is available until the NDIS transition starts in your area.

For more information or to apply, please visit My Future: My Life or contact 1300 MY PLAN (1300 697 526).
