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
