WHAT WE DO
WHAT IS THE NDIS?
In 2013, The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) was established. The core goal of the NDIS is to support people with permanent and significant disability which will replace the current disability support system which is currently run by each state government, with a federally backed Scheme. The NDIS will be phased in until it reaches full rollout by 2020.
There are around 4.3 million Australians who have a disability. When it is fully rolled out, the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will provide about 450,000+ Australians, who have permanent and significant disability with funding for supports and services.
The NDIS can provide all people with disability with information and connections to services in their communities such as doctors, sporting clubs, support groups, libraries and schools, as well as information about what support is provided by each state and territory government.
