What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a national strategy designed to provide innovative and flexible support for people with a disability, their families and carers in Australia. The NDIS will provide about 460,000 Australians under the age of 65 with a permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to enable independence and quality of life. People who meet the NDIS access requirements are called participants and they will receive funded supports and an individual plan.

A comprehensive range of supports are available to assist participants in all aspects of their life from independence in the home to community involvement, wellbeing and employment. Supports may include personal care, domestic assistance, access to the community, therapy services and essential equipment. The NDIS also provides people with disability, their families and carers with information and referrals to existing support services in the community.

Please visit the NDIS website for more information.
