The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is Australia’s first national Scheme for people with disability. It provides funding directly to individuals.
The NDIS provides support to eligible people with intellectual, physical, sensory, cognitive and psychosocial disability. Early intervention supports can also be provided for eligible people with disability or children with developmental delay.
The NDIS is designed to help people get the support they need so their skills and independence improve over time.
The NDIS gives all Australians peace of mind if they, their child or loved one is born with or acquires a permanent and significant disability, they will get the support they need.
If you have an NDIS plan, we can work with you and your support network to help you to realise your goals.
You can also control the supports and services you purchase, by self-managing your NDIS plan. Watch this animation or download the NDIS Self-Management Guide to assist you in managing your own NDIS plan.
