How the NDIS works
What is the NDIS?
The NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) has been designed to support people with permanent and significant disability to take part in everyday activities.
It provides funding based on need and gives choice and control over the support received. This means you are not assessed on your disability alone, you are assessed on your particular circumstances and aspirations. The support provided ensures you reach your particular goals including independence, involvement in your community, education, employment, health and wellbeing.
The NDIS provides certainty that you will receive the support you require over your lifetime, giving you peace of mind. It also focuses on early intervention, at a time when getting early support can reduce the impact of disability.
