The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a Federal Government initiative helping people under 65 with a disability to access the care and support they need. It is for people with a permanent or significant disability that affects their ability to lead an everyday life and delivers a broad range of care and support services. Detailed information can be found at the NDIS website.
There are several key factors that will determine your eligibility for the NDIS, including your age, location, residency status and actual disability or early intervention requirements. A good starting point is to check your initial status by using the NDIS Access Checklist.
The NDIS is full of new terms and phrases, and it is important that you understand these to ensure you get the very best and most appropriate services available. A comprehensive list of easy to understand definitions are found in the NDIS Glossary of Terms.
The NDIS is a big change for Australians with disability and their families and carers, and questions are inevitable. The NDIS have implemented multiple channels for people to get answers to all their questions including social media, the NDIS website and direct contact centres. All NDIS contact details can be found here.
