An overview of the National Disability Insurance Scheme

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) gives people with a disability greater choice and control over the support they receive.

It provides eligible people with funding based on their personal needs, goals and aspirations.

Launched by the Australian Federal Government in 2013, the new scheme is a big change from what we had before. There is a strong focus on ensuring people with a disability continue to get the support they need.

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is responsible for rolling the system out across Australia.

What does the NDIS mean for people with a disability?

For eligible people, the NDIS provides greater freedom to choose services.

You get to choose the type of supports you receive, how you receive them, and which disability service providers you’ll work with.

You’ll receive individual funding, and have control over how your funds are managed.

 As an approved NDIS provider, we are here to help make these positive changes happen as smoothly as possible.
