NDIS Services

What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a government scheme designed to give people with a disability the support they need to live a better life.

The support comes in the form of packages – each one tailored to meet the needs of the individual. An NDIS service provider can develop a plan to ensure you get the support you need.

Disability is a very broad term. The NDIS is for eligible people with disabilities of various types, including:

  • Intellectual
  • Physical
  • Sensory
  • Cognitive
  • Psychosocial

The NDIS addresses permanent and significant disabilities. These are disabilities that generally last a lifetime or make it difficult to carry out everyday tasks.

The NDIS also provides early intervention support for eligible people with a disability or children who have a developmental delay. The goal here is to minimise the impacts of the disability or the developmental delay and to enable the person to develop life skills and independence.

One of the primary aims of the NDIS is to reassure all Australians that support is available if they, or a family member, are born with or acquire a disability.

An important point to make about the NDIS is that it’s not a welfare system. Instead, it’s a system that enables people to access the help and support they need, with the ultimate goal of improving their set of skills and level of independence. In this way, people living with a disability can reach their goals and participate more fully in the community.

The purpose of the NDIS is to fund support connected to disability. The disability support pension (DSP) exists to help with the living costs that people with a disability may experience.

The DSP is a payment from Centrelink, while the NDIS is a payment from the National Disability Insurance Agency, an independent statutory body.
