The NDIS is an abbreviation for National Disability Insurance Scheme and is a Government initiative designed to support Australians with a disability. The scheme is overseen by the National Disability Insurance Agency – or NDIA – and allows individuals with a significant and permanent disability to access government funding.
The NDIS has already helped support a better life for thousands of Australians, their families and carers.
For who is the NDIS?
The NDIS focuses on those with a disability – the NDIS participants - and provides them with the choice to decide how and where to use their allocated funding. Participants can get the support across many areas. The NDIS takes a lifetime approach, investing in people with disability early in life, so they can improve the outcome of the participant later.
Through NDIS authorisation, allocated funding goes directly to products and equipment that the NDIS participant really needs from the provider of their choice. For each eligible NDIS participant, a plan and budget are created based on specific individual needs and goals.
