What is the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is designed to offer services and support to those with permanent and significant disabilities. Resources are allocated to enable assistance with fulfilling the needs of people with a disability and connecting them to appropriate services. The aim of the NDIS is to give person focused support and to improve the mechanisms, efficiency and accessibility to national services for those with life-altering disabilities.
How Do I Get Support Under The NDIS?
Check your eligibility
Meet with a consultant and develop your plan
Firstly, you’ll have a meeting with the NDIA to develop your plan. The NDIA will look at what services you’re currently utilising and your individual requirements. Your plan will be based on your objectives, needs and goals, as well as the support and services that will best suit you moving forward. We can definitely help you prepare for this meeting.
Bring your action plan to life
The finalised plan will be put into action, by this we mean selecting the best provider(s) and support workers, managing your fund and implementing your ongoing plan, among many things.
