The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is changing the way Australians with a permanent disability manage their treatment, empowering them to tailor their support to their particular needs and goals.
The Australian Government began rolling out the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in June 2016 to all eligible Australians. The rollout is expected to be complete by 2019 and by that time around half a million Australians will be receiving assistance under the NDIS.
This guide is designed to introduce individuals and their carers to the NDIS and provide information on how to access the scheme and what assistance is available.
