FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
There is so much information out there surrounding the National Disability Insurance Scheme, it can be confusing not knowing what information is relevant and whether or not that information is relevant to you. So let’s start at the beginning.
National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
The NDIS provides support for people up to 65 years old who have a permanent and significant disability that affects their ability to take part in everyday activities. It provides direct access to a pool of funds that provides supports for people with disability to live the life they want. Each person’s budget for services and supports is based on an assessment of their current and future needs.
