What is the NDIS?

NDIS stands for National Disability Insurance Scheme.

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

The NDIS works with people with disability to identify supports that they need to live their life and develops a plan to fund these supports.

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 choice and control over how, when and where your supports are provided. It also gives you the certainty that you will receive the support you need over your lifetime. 

The NDIS also focuses on early intervention where getting supports can reduce the impact of disability on you or your child.

The NDIS funds reasonable and necessary supports that help you to achieve your goals such as

  • therapies
  • equipment
  • home modifications
  • mobility equipment
  • taking part in community activities
  • assistance with employment.
An NDIS plan tailored to your individual needs will be developed to help you achieve your goals.
