Understanding NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is Australia’s largest reform to the way supports are provided to Australian’s living with a disability. The NDIS scheme supports people living with a significant and permanent disability which affects daily life. The NDIS is delivered by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).

The NDIS aims to provide care and support for people with a permanent disability and improve the outcomes for participants by funding reasonable and necessary supports that allow the participant to participate in daily life and activities as well as build on skills to enable participants to re-join the workforce or maintain employment if possible. The NDIS does not provide funding for supports that are provided under other services, however NDIS providers will assist you if required to access those services.
