About The NDIS
The NDIS gives all Australians peace of mind if they, their child or loved one is born with or acquires a permanent and significant disability, they will get the support they need.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme is called the NDIS. The NDIS is a new way for people with a disability under the age of 65 to get the care and supports they need.
The NDIS is for people with a permanent and significant disability which impacts on their ability to take part in everyday activities.
Supports can be across many areas including employment, early intervention, accommodation, independence, being involved in the community, and more.
The NDIS is being progressively rolled out across Australia under the management of the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) – the agency responsible for delivering the scheme. The rollout is due to be completed by 2020.
