Introducing the National Disability Insurance Scheme
The National Disability Insurance Scheme provides individualised support for people with permanent and significant disability, as well as their families and carers.
The primary purpose of the NDIS is to support individuals with a significant and permanent disability (participants) to be more independent and engage socially and economically, while delivering a financially sustainable NDIS that builds genuinely connected and engaged communities and stakeholders’.

The NDIS website has a wealth of information and we highly recommend you become familiar with the content in depth. In particular, the information around eligibility, access and planning are important.
