A question that keeps coming up is – ‘where do I start?!’
What is NDIS?
NDIS means National Disability Insurance Scheme.
It is a scheme that offers a lifetime approach to investing in people with disability.
It is designed to help people to build skills and capability so they can participate in the community and employment.
Can I access the NDIS?
You can access the NDIS depending on your age, residency and disability.
What if I am not eligible?
If you are not eligible for funding, you may still be able to access disability and mainstream supports available in the community.
You can find information about your options to build skills and capability and to link to these services on our website www.ndis.gov.au/people-disability/information-and-referral
Your plan is a lifelong relationship with the NDIS.
The NDIS can support you even if you’re not eligible for funding
Flexibility so you’re in control
You can choose the providers you want, which means, you’re in control from day one. Your existing provider may need to continue to deliver some supports initially or ongoing.
Your plans are reviewed every 12 months to make sure you are getting the support you need.
It is advisable to do an NDIS checklist so that you have all the correct details and by doing a checklist, your life will be easier.
