What is the NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing support for people living with a disability. It’s a holistic approach – a major reform of disability services in Australia, designed to provide the right support according to each person’s needs and goals.

How do I know if I am eligible?

To become an NDIS participant you will need to meet the age, residency and disability or early intervention access requirements. In some States and Territories people currently receiving supports will be moving to the NDIS first.

To see if you meet the access requirements, use the NDIS Access Checklist on the website. (NDIS Link)
