Disability Care (NDIS)
Live life to the fullest
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing support to Australians with disability, and bring peace of mind to their family and carers. It is a lifetime insurance scheme that invests in people with disability early, aiming to achieve independence, community involvement, education, employment, health and well-being.
Muslimcare is a leader in providing all NDIS services.
Introduced and implemented progressively across all states, nation-wide.
Support for different forms of disabilities, and early intervention for children with developmental delay.
Aiding all Australians if they, their child, or loved one is born with or acquires a permanent or a significant disability.
Not a welfare system. NDIS is designed to help get the support you need so your skills and independence improve over time.
To Be Eligible For The Disability Care (NDIS) Services, You Have To Meet Some Standards. You Must:
What Evidence Do I need?
The required evidence differs depending on the type of primary disability you have provide formal evidence that you have, or are likely to have a permanent or significant disability, including information about: disability type, diagnosis date (if possible), how long it will last (if applicable), and any available treatments. If you provide extra information about how areas of your life, such as mobility, communication, self care, etc are impacted, this will also be counted as evidence by the NDIS.
Who can provide evidence?
You can work with health professionals to provide you with formal evidence of your disability; so long as they are the appropriate professional for the related disability and have been treating you for a minimum of 6 months.
Common treating health professionals include: general practitioner (GP), paediatrician, orthopaedic surgeon, occupational therapist, speech pathologist, neurologist, etc.
