About the NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is Australia’s dedicated program offering assistance to those living with disabilities. It aims to provide tailored support, ensuring you receive necessary care and services that align with your unique needs and aspirations.

The NDIS aims to provide personalised plans tailored to your individual circumstances, lifestyles, and goals. As a participant, you should receive a curated plan that aligns with your personal situation, making your day-to-day life easier to navigate. You’ll have a say in how your allocated funds are used, ensuring you have active input into your support structure.

It’s a big task which often isn’t possible to achieve through such a large and complex system – at least without the support of dedicated support coordinators like us. Our goal is to ensure you receive the support available to you with as minimal difficulty as possible.

Who is the NDIS for?

The NDIS is designed to support Australians living with significant and permanent disabilities that impact their ability to take part in everyday activities. From children to adults up to the age of 65, it can help those who have developmental delays, intellectual, physical, sensory, cognitive, and psychosocial disabilities.

The NDIS is critical for those whose disabilities are likely to be lifelong, and who need various levels of support to achieve their goals and live independently. It’s also useful when it’s used for early intervention for those who might benefit from receiving pre-emptive support, to reduce the impacts of their disability or developmental delay over time. This is particularly significant for young children, as early intervention can dramatically improve the trajectory of their growth and development.

The scheme also recognises the invaluable role of carers and families, providing them with resources and support to help care for their loved ones – and for themselves as well.

How you can access the NDIS

Navigating the NDIS begins with an eligibility assessment, which considers age, residency, and the nature of your disability. To start, you’ll need to submit an application detailing your disability and its impact on your life.

If successful, this leads to a planning phase where your goals and potential supports are discussed. As a new participant, you’ll collaborate with an NDIS representative to create your individualised plan. Once your plan is set, you’ll be ready to access the services, equipment or other resources that come with your plan.

It’s worth noting that these plans are not static. They undergo regular reviews to ensure they remain useful and aligned with your needs if they change.

Once the planning phase is completed, you’ll receive allocated funds to obtain the services or support outlined in your plan. This can range from daily assistance or therapeutic interventions to employment support and mobility equipment.
