Working with the NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (also called the NDIS) is the new way of providing disability support.

The NDIS will provide all Australians under the age of 65 with permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to live an ordinary life.

People who are eligible for NDIS support are called a participant.

Each participant has their own NDIS plan that identifies the outcomes they wish to achieve, the supports that will be funded by the NDIS and other supports the person requires.

Providers are individuals or organisations that deliver a support or a product to a participant in the NDIS.

People with disability will choose the providers they engage and can change providers at any time.
