What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a national program that enables people with a permanent and significant disability to choose their own supports and services to meet their personal needs and goals.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing support for Australians with disability, their families and carers.
As an insurance scheme, the NDIS takes a lifetime approach, investing in people with disability early to improve their outcomes later in life.
