- What is NDIS ?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing support to people with disability, their families and carers. You receive your own funding and have the flexibility to choose how, when and where you receive support.
How do I apply for the NDIS?
If you think you meet the NDIS criteria, you can apply to join the NDIS.
How Do I know the NDIS pathway
Visit the NDIS page: https://www.ndis.gov.au/participants/planning-process.
Who will manage my plan?
You get to decide what works best for you in managing your plan and how you want to implement it. You may choose to manage it yourself with assistance from a person you nominate, or use the NDIS agency. You can discuss how you want to manage the plan at your meeting. The Planner will be able to tell you more about your options.
Are there different package amounts?
Yes, package amounts will vary.
The aim of the NDIS is to provide you with the supports and services required for you to be as independent as possible.
The amount of the package is determined by your individual needs, goals, aspirations and what is included in your plan.
Your NDIS Planner will explain how it works.
Do I get to choose my service provider?
Yes. One of the best things about the NDIS is that it aims to give participants choice and control so you get to choose who delivers your support and services, and the way in which they are delivered. Our Service Managers will work with you to ensure services are responsive to your needs and set up in the best way to help achieve your individual goals.
