NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme

What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing Australians under 65 who have a permanent and/or significant disability, with funding to receive the necessary care and supports to achieve their goals. It’s one of the biggest changes people living with disability have experienced in a long time. By 2020, the complete rollout of the NDIS will touch the lives of more than 460,000 Australians nationwide.

    What is the NDIS?

    The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing Australians under 65 who have a permanent and/or significant disability, with funding to receive the necessary care and supports to achieve their goals.

    What does it mean for me?

    The NDIS aims to give you more choice and control by providing funding directly to you. The amount of funding you receive is based on your disability needs, not your income and capital. If you’re receiving income support, such as Disability Support Pension and Carers Allowance, being on the NDIS will NOT have any impact.

    We understand you may feel apprehensive about this new approach to disability support, but rest assured we’re here to help you throughout your NDIS journey. Scroll down and see our step by step guide to get you started.
