National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

The NDIS aims to provide personal support for participants under 65 years of age, with long term or significant disabilities, to get the support you need. The NDIS will fund supports that are reasonable and necessary for participants to achieve their goals.

What is the National Disability Agency (NDIA)?

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is the agency that implements the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Their priority is to ensure people with disability get the support that they need. The Agency will arrange for someone to work with you to develop your NDIS plan.

What will the NDIS fund?

NDIS provides long-term, individualised support that is reasonable and necessary to meet the needs of people with permanent and significant disability.

This includes providing AT items to allow participants to engage in: activities of daily living such as cooking and cleaning, recreational activities, mobility, personal care and safety, and to maintain personal hygiene.

Who is eligible?

To be eligible for the NDIS you will need to meet the age, residency, and disability or early intervention access requirements.
To see if you meet the access requirements, you can use the NDIS 'Access Checklist' which is available on the NDIS website here: NDIS Access Checklist.
