The NDIS opens the door to new opportunities for people we support; here are some life-changing examples:

* Effie has a support worker to go out on the weekend with her, something she could not do before.
* Adele is building her capacity to live independently.
* Samraing has support to develop his artistic talent and to sell his artwork.
* Lucy has a support worker with her at home building her skills for her morning routine.

What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing support for people with a disability, their families and carers.  Funding is allocated based on the supports the individual requires, so getting the best possible plan is very important.

The NDIS is an insurance scheme, which takes a lifetime approach, investing in people with a disability from an early stage to improve their outcomes later in life.

The NDIS has no impact on the Disability Support Pension or Carers Allowance.

NDIS Eligibility Criteria: https://www.ndis.gov.au/ndis-access-checklist

What is an NDIS plan?
