What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funding support to eligible people diagnosed with intellectual, physical, sensory, cognitive, and psychosocial disabilities under the age of 65. 

The NDIS works with you to identify the supports you need to achieve goals in many aspects of your life. This may include independence, involvement in your community, education, employment and health and wellbeing.

It provides greater choice and control over how and when you receive your supports and ensures you receive the support you need over your lifetime.

It also focuses on early intervention where getting early support can reduce the impact of disability for you or your child

Did you know that NDIS Plan Management costs zero cost to you or your Plan!

Each NDIS participant has access to a Plan Manager. The funds are not taken out of your current NDIS funding allotment. The NDIS gives additional funding for your Plan Manager, so no out-of-pocket for you or your NDIS Plan.
