What is NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides support for eligible people with a permanent and significant disability. In order to receive NDIS services you will need to be assessed by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA). Once you have been approved for NDIS, you can begin to look for a provider for each of your services, known as ‘supports’.
