What Is The NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing individualized support for people with a permanent and significant disability, their families and carers.
Who will be eligible for NDIS individua support package?
NDIS individual support packages will be available to people who:
- Have a permanent and significant disability that affects their ability to participate in the community or employment and for which they require care and support;
- Are under the age of 65 years.
Are we able to choose the type of support we receive?
This is what the NDIS is all about. It was established to give you more choice and control over how, when and where your supports are provided. Before you get involved with the NDIS, think about the disability related services and supports you have in your life. What’s working or what’s not working for you.
How do I get started?
You can go to the Access Checklist page on the NDIS website. This is an accessible online list of questions and will tell you in a few minutes if the NDIS will be likely to support you. It checks information about you and any supports you may need to live your life. It is an easy needs-based assessment, rather than ruling in or out a specific type of disability. It also checks where you live so you can find out when the NDIS is coming to your area.
You can get in touch with our lovely staff by making an appointment or calling.
