GETTING NDIS READY
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing disability support and care to people in Australia and is delivered by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).The NDIS provides people with disability the opportunity to be part of the decision-making process for their personalised care, allowing them to drive and make many of the important decisions about how they want to live their life and who they would like to deliver their support. The NDIS supports people by building skills and capability so they can participate in the community and employment.Funding is applied directly to the person with the disability, allowing them the flexibility to choose the services they need. This replaces the old system of funding being directly applied to the service providers.
The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is an independent agency that has been set up by the Australian Government to deliver and run the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new, national approach to providing support to people with disability as well as their families and carers. The NDIS is being progressively rolled out around Australia from July 2016.For up-to-date information on whether the NDIS is available in your area, visit the official NDIS website by selecting the relevant state or territory link below.
