What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme is an Australian government initiative that provides funding and support to an estimated 500,000 Australians who have permanent and significant disability.
It is designed to assist people with disabilities to achieve goals in life by providing more control and choice over their designed supports. The NDIS provides all people with disability with information and connections to services in their communities such as doctors, sporting clubs, support groups, libraries and schools, as well as information about what support is provided by each state and territory government.
