NDIS

What is NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way to support people with disability in Australia enacted pursuant to National Disability Insurance Scheme Act 2013 and National Disability Insurance Scheme (Registered Provider of Supports) Rules 2013. The NDIS is administered by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA). The purpose of NDIS is to fund supports for people recognised and registered as living with a permanent disability.
If you are a person living with permanent disability or do not even know whether your disability is permanent and can be recognised and funded by the NDIA, please contact us. We will assist you to get through the relevant paper work required for assessment.
The NDIS market is rapidly becoming a growing market despite being established recently. The NDIS market is projected to expand exponentially over the coming years, creating significant opportunities for the existing providers and new entrants into the market. Nationally, the level of expenditure on disability supports will more double, reaching approximately $22 billion by the years 2018-2019, supporting, 460,000 participants, once the NDIS is fully implemented.

Disability Direction

Legislative Framework

  • The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Act 2013
  • The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) (Registered Provider of Supports) Rules 2013
  • The relevant workplace and health and safety, criminal and industrial relations laws.

The Purpose

The National Disability Insurance Scheme plan will fund reasonable and necessary supports that will assist you to achieve your goals.
A participant’s reasonable and necessary supports consider any informal supports already available to the individual (informal arrangements that are part of family life or natural connections with friends and community services) as well as other formal supports, such as health and education.
Reasonable and necessary supports are funded by the NDIS in a range of areas, which may include education, employment, social participation, independence, living arrangements and health and wellbeing. These supports will help participants to:

  • pursue their goals, objectives and aspirations
  • increase their independence
  • increase social and economic participation, and
  • develop their capacity to actively take part in the community.
