NDIS

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

What is the NDIS?

The NDIS supports people with a permanent and significant disability that affects their ability to take part in

everyday activities.

 

NDIS will work with you to identify supports you need to live your life. Supports may help you achieve goals in

many aspects of your life, including independence, involvement in your community, education, employment and

health and wellbeing.

 

The NDIS gives you more choice and control over how, when and where your supports are provided, and gives

you certainty you will receive the support you need over your lifetime.

 

It also focuses on early intervention where getting early supports can reduce the impact of disability on you or

your child.
