WHAT IS THE NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is how the Australian Government funds the costs associated with having a disability, so that people with disabilities and their families have the supports they need. The NDIS is overseen by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA). To find out more, visit the NDIS website, through the link below.
Australians aged between 7 under 65 years old, who are Australian Citizen or Permanent resident, with permanent and significant disability, may be able to apply for NDIS funding. Please check eligibility by clicking on the link below.
How does the NDIS help?
NDIS funding provides supports and services to people with disability to help them participate in the community and reach their goals. The NDIS is not income tested and participants do not have to pay co-contribution fees. This means that those who care for someone with a disability do not have to pay for all the necessary supports. It also means that families who care for someone with disability have the peace of mind that their loved one will receive the supports they need.
