Understanding NDIS

What is the NDIS?

HomeUnderstanding NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is Australia’s government-funded national scheme for people living with a disability.

In short, the NDIS offers support to people living with permanent and significant disability in the form of funding and connections to services in the community.

If you’re eligible, you can get an NDIS plan and individual funding to empower you to thrive in your daily life. You get to control the process, decide what services you’d like to use, and what you’d like to achieve with your plan.

You may also be able to get funding for a Support Coordinator who’ll help you get the most out of your NDIS plan.
