The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a funded way of providing support for people with disabilities, their families and carers. The NDIS will assess your needs and assist in developing a personalised plan taking into consideration your support needs and personal goals. The NDIS is intended to give you more choice and better control over how, where and when your supports are provided, as well as certainty you will receive the support you need to live and enjoy an ordinary life as independently as possible.
The types of supports that the NDIS may fund for participants include:
- Daily personal activities.
- Transport to enable participation in community, social, economic and daily life activities.
- Therapeutic supports including behaviour support.
- Mobility equipment.
Please check the NDIS page regularly for the latest information on the response to coronavirus (COVID-19).
