NDIS

What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is designed to change the way disability services are delivered in Australia. It aims to do this by:

  • Recognising that disability related support is an entitlement
  • Acknowledging the right of all people to an ‘ordinary life’
  • Matching funding to the support needed and placing control over the funding with the person and their support network
  • Ensuring that providers discuss the service they will deliver with the person who will receive it through negotiation of individual agreements
  • Supporting a social model of disability support where the community sector contributes to support as they do for all community members, and
  • Facilitating choice of provider in an open market.

People who are eligible work with the NDIS through a planning process, where they can identify their needs and goals, then develop a plan that identifies the disability related support they require.

From personal support, to assistance to access study or to get a job, the NDIS is all about empowering you to live a full and independent life!  For further information, contact us:
