What is NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) was established in 2013 and is a new way of assisting people with a disability to get the support they need, achieve their human rights, and participate in the social and economic life of the nation. The NDIS’ central objective is for people with disability to achieve their life goals. The NDIS is designed to provide all Australians under the age of 65, who have a permanent and significant disability, with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to enjoy an ordinary life. The main component of the NDIS is individualised packages of support to eligible people with disability. Key outcomes for NDIS participants include overall increased independence with greater participation in employment, the economy, society, and community life. The NDIS also provides people with disability, their family, and carers, with information and referrals to existing support services in the community.
