What is the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing support for Australians with disabilities, their families and carers. It was initiated by the Australian Government for Australians with a disability, including people with intellectual, physical, sensory and psycho-social disabilities. It creates a managed market for disability services in Australia. The NDIS will provide approx. 460,000 Australians under the age of 65 with a permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary support they need to live a life like anyone else.
As an insurance scheme, the NDIS scheme takes a lifetime approach, investing in people with disability early to improve their outcomes later in life. It gives all Australians peace of mind that if their child or loved one is born with or acquires a permanent and significant disability they will get the support they need.
The NDIS supports people with disability to build skills and capability so they can participate in the community and employment.
