National Disability Insurance Scheme

1/1

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
