What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing support for people with disability, their families and carers in Australia.

The NDIS will provide about 460,000 Australians under the age of 65 with a permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to live an ordinary life.

Reasonable and necessary supports help people with disability achieve their goals, including independence, community involvement, employment and wellbeing.

Supports may include personal care and support, access to the community, therapy services and essential equipment.

The NDIS also provides people with disability, their families and carers with information and referrals to existing support services in the community.

The roll out of the NDIS begins from 1 July 2016 and is being introduced in stages around the country over the next three years to ensure it is successful and sustainable.

Existing Commonwealth and state-based services and supports will continue until eligible people start to receive supports from the NDIS.

Now is the time to get ready.
