What is the NDIS?

NDIS stands for National Disability Insurance Scheme.

The NDIS supports people with a permanent and significant disability that affects their ability to take part in everyday activities.

People with disability are helped to identify supports that they need to live their life and to develop a tailored plan to fund these supports and help you achieve your goals.

Supports may help you achieve goals in many aspects of your life, including:

  • independence
  • social and community participation
  • assistance with daily skills
  • life skills

The NDIS gives you choice and control over how, when and where your supports are provided, and gives you certainty you will receive the support you need over your lifetime.

The NDIS funds reasonable and necessary supports that help you to achieve your goals such as:

  • therapies
  • equipment
  • home modifications
  • mobility equipment
  • individual and group social activities
  • support for daily living
  • weekend and holiday breaks
