National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
What is the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme or NDIS for short is a relatively new system of support available to people with disability, their families and carers. The NDIS is a national scheme supported by both the national and participating state and territory governments.
The NDIS is designed to support Australians under 65 who have permanent and significant disabilities and for many people, it will be the first time they receive disability support.
The NDIS attempts to take a lifetime approach to care by helping people early on in life to improve their longer-term outcomes.
The NDIS is not a system of welfare but rather a network that can provide people with information as well as connect them with various support groups such as specialist doctors, nursing services like Vital Home Health Services as well as support groups.
