What is NDIS

What is NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) gives people with a disability greater choice and control over the support they receive. It provides eligible people with funding based on their personal needs, goals and aspirations.

The NDIS recognises that everyone is different and gives people with disability choice and flexibility. This means you can choose who provides that support.

For example, you may not be happy with the service provider you use. The NDIS will make it easier for you to change service providers and make sure you are getting the support you need.

If you are happy with the support you are getting, there is no reason to change. The NDIS will not take that help away.

If you are not eligible for the NDIS you will not be disadvantaged. People who already receive support will continue to receive support.

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is responsible for rolling the system out across Australia. The priority of the NDIA is to ensure people with disability continue to get the support they need.
