National Disability Insurance Scheme


The National Disability Insurance Scheme is a commonwealth government initiative designed to provide individualised support for eligible people with permanent and significant disability, including psychosocial disabilities associated with a mental illness, their families and their carers.


The NDIS aims to:

  • Look at a person’s needs across their lifetime, giving participants the things they need early to improve their outcomes later in life

  • Help participants achieve their goals, be more independent, be more  involved in the community and access employment

  • Help to connect participants, their family and carers with services in the community

  • Domestic assistance (household cleaning, assistance with laundry)

  • Home maintenance

  • Community Nursing Care (Continence, District Nursing)

  • Personal Mobility equipment
