NDIS

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 support to achieve your goals to live independently and enhance your well being.

 

NDIS gives the individual, their family and carers peace of mind and choice having the right support to improve their well being. It provides you with more choice and control over how, when and where to use these supports. You can also control the supports and services you purchase, by self-managing your NDIS plan. If you have an NDIS plan, we can work with you and your support network to help you to realise your goals. 

NDIS and YOU

The NDIS can help you achieve your goals in many aspects of your life. It is about your choices, the decisions you and those closest to you make, your involvement in your community, your education and employment.

It’s also about your overall health and well being and creating opportunities for you to have greater participation in a more inclusive community.

If you have a child with a disability, the changes will significantly improve the quality of life you envision for them. They will grow up without the barriers to a full life that they may have otherwise experienced.

For adults, the changes will empower people to make your own choices, live your life and define your future.
