What is the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)?
The NDIS is a new way of providing people with a disability better choice & control on how they live their lives.
Funded by the Federal Government, the NDIS provides individualised funding packages that people can use to purchase supports & equipment they need to achieve their goals & live a better life. Through the NDIS, eligible people are provided with a funding package based on an assessment & planning process which identifies reasonable & necessary supports needed for them to live their life. Supports may help you achieve goals in many different areas of your life including independence, community involvement, education, employment & health & wellbeing.
The NDIS gives you more choice & control to get the supports that you need, when & where you need them. It provides you with flexibility to use one provider or many providers. Whatever you prefer! You can even choose a provider who can help you manage your funds if you need help.
