What is the NDIS?

The NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) is a national framework designed to help support people under the age of 65 suffering from a disability. The scheme was introduced to provide better access to a range of services and supports to ensure participants, families and carers are able to enjoy higher quality life.

The NDIS has many supports in place to best assist the needs of NDIS participants, all of which have the aim to help each participant with a disability to achieve their therapeutic goals.
