What is the NDIS?
  • What is the NDIS and how does it work?
    The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a single, National program that funds reasonable and necessary support to help people with a disability or children with developmental delay reach their goals. Each participant in the scheme has an NDIS Plan, which details their goals, the supports needed to achieve them, and the funding allocated in each area. This Plan is reviewed periodically and adjusted as needed.
  • Am I eligible to access the NDIS?
    The NDIS is open to all Australian citizens or permanent residents aged 7 – 65, who have a permanent and significant disability. Children aged 0 – 6 may be able to access support through Early Childhood Early Intervention if the child has a developmental delay or diagnosed disability. The ECEI approach supports families to help children develop the skills they need to take part in daily activities and achieve the best possible outcomes throughout their life. Check the NDIS eligibility tool to see whether you are eligible and find out more about how to commence an application:
