What is the NDIS?
The NDIS is a new way of delivering services and support for people with permanent disability in Australia.
With the NDIS, people with disability can choose supports and services to meet their individual needs, rather than have to fit into a one-size-fits-all system.
The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is the independent agency responsible for implementing the NDIS.
Why do we need the NDIS?
People with disability have the same rights as other Australians to choice and control over their lives.
The NDIS recognises that everyone’s needs and goals are different.
The scheme provides people with individualised support and the flexibility to manage their supports so that they can live the life they choose.
Australians will have peace of mind that if their child or loved one is born with or acquires a disability they will get the support they need, when they need it.
