The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing support for people with a disability, their families and carers.
Funding is attached to an individual based on the supports included in their NDIS plan, so getting the best plan possible is very important.
The NDIS is an insurance scheme, which takes a lifetime approach, investing in people with disability early, to improve their outcomes later in life, and fun a range of disability support services.

Marriott can help you put your plan together, including determining the best NDIS provider for your needs. Don’t take a back seat; rather, take an active role with your family and/or carers to ensure the plan includes all supports important to you. Every plan is different for each person, and Marriott’s Support Coordination can help you.

So when we went for our NDIS planning meeting we were organised and felt confident and it did go well.’
