National Disability Insurance Scheme
What Is The NDIS?
The government identified gaps in disability support services across all states. People with a disability were caught in a system that responds to crisis; a system that drips out support rather than invests in someone’s future.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has been established and will change the way we currently provide disability services. Rather than funding based on budget allocations, funding will be provided based on assessed needs.
It will recognise disability as a lifetime approach supporting choice for people with disability, their families and carers, and put people in control of the care and support they receive, based on need.
Who Is Eligible?
Eligiblity depends on your situation your goals and your choices. The first step is to contact the NDIS. An appointment will be organised where you will meet with a planer to determine eligibility. Once eligiblity is confrimed your will develop an individualised plan, choose your supports and implement your plan. You may be eligible if you have a significant permanent disability, you are under 65 years of age and you cannot join activites without assistive technology / equipment, or join acitivies at home or in the community without support.
What Does The NDIS Provide?
You choose how you want to manage your individual funding. The scheme funds supports that will assist a particpiate to undertake activities of daily living required due to the persons disability. This includes aids and equipment, home modifications, personal care, domestic assistance, therapies, nursing care and dental, participation , community access and social support.
