The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) supports individuals with a disability, as well as their families, and carers. The NDIS provides support to people with intellectual, physical, sensory, cognitive, and psychosocial disability.
A significant number of Australians are not provided the funds and support they need; this is where NDIS helps. Within the next 5 years, the NDIS will provide more than $22 billion in funding per year to an estimated 500,000 Australians who have permanent and significant disability. For many people, it will be the first time they receive the disability support they need.
The NDIS is administered by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).
If you are aged between 7 and 65 years, if you are an Australian Citizen, permanent resident, or have a special category visa, if you have a permanent and significant disability, if you use special equipment for a permanent and significant disability, if you need some support now to reduce your future needs, you may be eligible for NDIS.
The NDIS helps you get the support you need so your skills and independence improve over time. This is with the support and guidance of a Level 3 Specialist Support Coordinator, or Recovery Coach.
If yourself, your child, or your loved one is born with or acquires a significant disability, the NDIS gives you peace of mind knowing you will get the support you need.

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is a government organisation which administers the NDIS. They ensure Australians with a significant and permanent disability, their families, and carers, receive the support and funding they need.
