About the NDIS

What is the NDIS?

NDIS stands for National Disability Insurance Scheme. It is the new way of providing support to people with disability in Australia.

The NDIS provides people with disability with the support they need to live an ordinary life.

Unlike previous systems, the NDIS provides people with disability with the choice of how, when and where that services and support are delivered to them. They are in the driver’s seat, and can choose what works best for them.
