What is the NDIS?


The National Insurance Disability Scheme (NDIS) supports people with disabilities to build skills and capability so they can participate in the community and employment. This government initiative is a new way of funding disability services in Australia. It supports eligible people with permanent and significant disability, their families and their carers. It aims to give people with disabilities real choice and control over the assistance they receive and how they live their lives.
