The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has been designed to give people living with disability better control and choice over the supports they receive. The NDIS replaces block funding and provides eligible participants with funding packages based on their needs and goals. The NDIS will give you better choice and control over how, where and when your supports are provided, this gives you certainty you will receive the support you need. The NDIS assures that people living with a disability have the same rights as everyone else. Participants are granted plans that are individualised to their needs and goals. NDIS plans are designed to help you live and enjoy an ordinary life as independently as possible.
The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is an independent statutory agency who is responsible for the implementation of the NDIS.
