The NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme)

The NDIS is a new avenue of support for Australians with a disability or functional impairment, their families and carers.

The NDIS gives you choice and control in how and when supports and services are provided. With the National Disability Insurance Scheme, funding will now go directly to you to choose the supports you need to live your life well.  

The National Disability Insurance Scheme gives all Australians peace of mind that if they, or their child or loved one is born with or acquires a permanent and significant disability they will get the support they need across their lifetime. 

All Australians who meet the eligibility criteria are legally entitled to the National Disability Insurance Scheme funding for necessary and reasonable support.
