NDIS Story

What is NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme ( NDIS ) is one component of the National Disability Strategy which brings community, government and industry together to address the challenges faced by people with disability, and ensures they are supported by mainstream services such as health, education and transport.

The NDIS is a major reform of disability support in Australia. The NDIS emerged from years of discussions about problems with the existing disability support arrangements, the need for reform, and proposals for new models of disability support.

I love NDIS

The NDIS provides funding directly to eligible individuals. As a result, as an NDIS participant, you identify the support you need in your daily life, as well as what help you need to reach your goals. It also means you choose the NDIS provider you want to work with you.

Your first step is to develop a NDIS plan. Your plan will be all about you and your goals and needs. It will provide a lot of detail about the supports you will be funded for. In addition, it will also list the amount of funding you will receive for each of these supports.

We have highly qualified and experienced staff who are ready to assist you by providing the assistance you need to realise your plan. This assistance is always led by your choices, needs and goals.

We provide practical services which you may need, including:

Independence support
Daily personal activities
Community, Activities & Support

The following are the steps to get your NDIS plan. The planning process is very important as it determines the level of support you will get under NDIS.

Contacting the NDIS to determine eligibility
Preparing for your NDIS planning meeting
Your NDIS planning meeting
Your NDIS plan arrives
After these four steps you are ready to implement your plan to help you achieve your goals.

If you are aged between 7 and 65, a local area coordinator can help you to understand the NDIS, apply and connect with other government and community supports.

If you have a child aged under 7, an early childhood partner can provide supports to children before they apply, and let families know if the NDIS is right for their child.

You can also use the NDIS Eligibility checklist to find if you are eligible or not
