NDIS Overview and Resources
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a national scheme for people with a disability.
It moves away from the previous system in place, making sure to give the funding directly to you. It aims to provide you with choice and control.
The NDIS is overseen by the NDIA (National Disability Insurance Agency).
For many people, it means it will be the first time they receive the supports they need.
To receive financial support through the NDIS, you need to meet eligibility requirements. You can view the criteria here.
