The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an Australia wide scheme that will support people with a permanent and significant disability that affects their ability to take part in everyday activities. The NDIS will give people with disability more choice and control over how, when and where supports are received, and provides certainty that they will receive the support they need over their lifetime
NDIS provides supports to enjoy an ordinary life for both adults and children who have any kinds of developmental delay or disability.
The NDIS will help people with disability by developing and improving skill to achieve their goals. This also includes greater independence, community involvement, employment and improved wellbeing.
NDIS is an insurance scheme, which takes a lifespan approach. Investing in people with disability early to improve their outcomes for the rest of their life.
This is the best way of providing support for people with disability, their families and carers. If people with disability are able to access better supports, the families and carers will also be able to relax and have that peace of mind knowing their loved ones are completely taken care of.
