National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of living for people with a disability to get the care and support they need to live their best life.
The NDIS is available across all states and territories, providing support to eligible people with intellectual, physical, sensory, cognitive and psychosocial disability. Early intervention supports can also be provided for eligible people with a disability or children with a developmental delay.
The NDIS gives all Australians peace of mind if they, their child or loved one is born with or acquires a permanent and significant disability, they will get the support they need.
NDIS – what does it mean for me?
If you are eligible for the NDIS, you can work with the NDIA to tailor a plan and receive funding to support the goals in your plan. The NDIS has been designed to offer you choice and control, giving you the flexibility to manage your day-to-day activities with the option to receive as many necessary supports as you need.
Who is eligible?
You are eligible to participate in the NDIS if you are:
Living with a permanent and significant disability that affects your ability to take part in everyday activities;
An Australian citizen or permanent resident, New Zealand citizen, or the holder of a protected Special Category Visa;
