What is the NDIS

The NDIS ( National Disability Insurance Scheme)  provides necessary funding to Australians who have a permanent and significant disability.
 

Every person living with a disability has different needs. Your NDIS funding is there to provide you with the supports you need for your disability and help you work towards your goals.

Your funding is based on what is ‘reasonable’ and ‘necessary’ to pursue your goals, in addition to the support provided by family, friends, and other community and government services.

What does NDIS funding cover?

The types of supports that the NDIS may fund for participants include:

  • daily personal activities

  • transport to enable participation in community, social, economic and daily life activities

  • workplace help to allow a participant to successfully get or keep employment in the open or supported labour market

  • therapeutic supports including behaviour support

  • help with household tasks to allow the participant to maintain their home environment

  • help to a participant by skilled personnel in aids or equipment assessment, set up and training

  • home modification design and construction

  • mobility equipment, and

  • vehicle modifications.
