What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is how the Australian Government funds the costs that come from having disability, and is designed to help people with disabilities and their families.

How does the NDIS work?

The NDIS provides funding to eligible people, so they can get the support and help needed to reach their goals. There are eligibility requirements for getting NDIS funding.

The NDIS process

The NDIS can make a big difference to the lives of families and carers. It can give you peace of mind that the person you care for has the support they need to achieve their goals.
