NDIS: National Disability Insurance Scheme
The National Disability Insurance Scheme is an Australian Government Scheme that helps support eligible Australians living with a permanent or significant disability. The NDIS is managed by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).
The NDIS can be used to help identify and achieve your goals. With Independence Australia, you can use your NDIS funding for our Support Coordination services or to purchase NDIS consumables online, using your NDIS funding.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of supporting eligible Australians living with a permanent or significant disability.
The NDIS gives eligible participants an invaluable opportunity to build their skill sets for everyday tasks, purchase NDIS consumable products such as continence, nutrition and wound care products, and provide access to in-home care services or re-join the workforce.
To see if you or someone you provide care for is eligible to become an NDIS participant, please visit the NDIS website.
As an NDIS participant you will initially work with a Support Coordinator to create a custom plan based on your needs or the needs of someone you provide care for.
This NDIS plan will be used to help identify and achieve your goals, whether they be securing a job, joining a social group, or arranging and paying for products and personal care to assist in everyday life.
