What is the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)?

The NDIS aims to support a better life for Australians with significant permanent disability along with their families and carers. Our priority is to ensure that people with a disability continue to get the support they need. Once you have been notified that you are eligible for the NDIS, what comes next? We want to know more about you to create a plan that caters to your individual needs.

Firstly, you will be sent a planning kit. This kit includes information that explains the planning and assessment process. It also includes a participant statement for you to complete. We will also book an appointment for a planning and assessment conversation with you. You can invite other people to the meeting to support you if you like. The conversation we have will help us to understand the support that you might need.
