The NDIS can provide all people with disabilities with information and connections to services in their communities such as sporting clubs, support groups, libraries, and schools, as well as information about what support is provided by each state and territory government.
NDIS – What does it mean?
- National: The NDIS is being introduced progressively across all states and territories.
- Disability:The NDIS provides support to eligible people with intellectual, physical, sensory, cognitive, and psychosocial disabilities. Early intervention supports can also be provided for eligible people with disabilities or children with developmental delays.
- Insurance:The NDIS gives all Australians peace of mind if they, their child, or loved one is born with or acquires a permanent and significant disability, they will get the support they need.
- Scheme: The NDIS is not a welfare system. The NDIS is designed to help people get the support they need so that their skills and independence improve over time.
