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 provided to an individual based on the supports they require to be included in their NDIS plan, 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, and to fund a range of disability support services.

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

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

How to prepare for your review
1. Let your Support Co-ordinator know as soon as you are notified of your plan review meeting. Your Support Co-ordinator will meet with you to prepare and will likely go with you to the plan review meeting.
2. Information about the support you receive and progress to your goals from Service providers you use, is really important. So ask all service providers for this information
Then, work through these questions.
3. What has worked well in the past year?

4. Have goals been achieved?  If not, what part of the goal has been achieved or progressed?

5. What hasn’t worked in the past year?
