I support the NDIS

NDIS and you

What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an Australia-wide scheme. It is designed to help people under the age of 65 with a permanent and significant disability to get the support they need so their skills and independence can improve over time.

What are the three types of support budgets in your NDIS plan?

Every person living with a disability has different needs and goals. Funding amounts are based on what's 'reasonable' and 'necessary' for participants to achieve their goals, in addition to the support provided by family, friends and other community and government services. Your NDIS plan is individualised to your needs and goals. Therefore, the approved funding amounts will differ from participant to participant. NDIS plans will typically be reviewed every year, to assess whether goals are being achieved and needs are being met.
