Working for your future.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing individualised support for eligible people with a permanent and significant disability, their families and carers.
The NDIS is a person-centred approach to funding which will enable people living with a disability to determine their own future and receive funding based on their needs and goals. The NDIS will fund reasonable and necessary supports to help a participant to reach their goals and objectives in a range of areas, which may include education, employment, social participation, independence, living arrangements and health and wellbeing.
These supports will help participants to:
- pursue their goals, objectives and aspirations;
- increase their independence;
- Identify and develop new programs to meet the health and wellbeing needs of amputees.
- increase social and economic participation; and,
- develop their capacity to actively take part in the community.
The NDIS will be rolled out in stages across Australia. Full roll-out of the NDIS will commence in July 2016. You will have the option to attend information based events in your state or territory about engaging into the NDIS. Register with the NDIS Events page to find out more.
