The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a federal government scheme which provides funding to people with disability to access support services that support their specific needs to achieve their goals. Everyone’s support needs are different and under the NDIS, people have choice and control about what services and supports they receive.
The NDIS is an insurance scheme as disability can affect anyone and, through the scheme, everyone who is eligible is entitled to NDIS funding.
