NDIS: National Disability Insurance Scheme

national disability insurance scheme

What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of supporting eligible Australians living with a permanent or significant disability.

The NDIS gives eligible participants an invaluable opportunity to build their skill sets for everyday tasks, purchase NDIS consumable products such as continence, nutrition and wound care products, and provide access to in-home care services or re-join the workforce.

To see if you or someone you provide care for is eligible to become an NDIS participant, please visit the NDIS website. 

As an NDIS participant you will initially work with a Support Coordinator to create a custom plan based on your needs or the needs of someone you provide care for.

This NDIS plan will be used to help identify and achieve your goals, whether they be securing a job, joining a social group, or arranging and paying for products and personal care to assist in everyday life.
