About the NDIS
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides support to eligible people with intellectual, physical, sensory cognitive and psycohosocial disability.
The NDIS provides reasonable and necessary funding to people with a permament and significant disability to access the supports and services they need to live and enjoy their life. Every NDIS particiapant has an individual plan that lists their goals and funding.
NDIS participants use their funding to purchase supports and services to help them achieve their goals. Everyone has different goals. Goals might include things like volunteering, getting and keeping a job, making friends or participating in a local community activity. NDIS participants and their nominee or third-party decision makers control the support they receive, when they receive it and who provides it.
