What Is The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a government-funded programme designed to provide support and services to Australians with disabilities. The scheme aims to improve their quality of life by providing funding for necessary aids, equipment and therapies, as well as access to community activities and employment opportunities. The NDIS operates on the principle of giving people with disabilities more choice and control over their support needs, with a focus on providing personalised, flexible services. By providing support that is tailored to the individual’s needs and goals, the NDIS aims to enable people with disabilities to lead more independent and fulfilling lives.
How the NDIS works?
The NDIS works by providing funding to eligible Australians with a permanent disability. Individuals are assessed by the NDIS to determine the type and level of support required to achieve their goals and improve their quality of life. This assessment takes into account the person’s individual needs and circumstances, and a plan is developed with their input. Once the plan is approved, the person can then access the supports and services outlined in the plan, such as therapies, equipment, and assistance with daily living activities. The NDIS also provides assistance to help individuals navigate the system and find suitable providers. The aim is to empower individuals with disabilities to have more choice and control over their lives and to access the support they need to participate fully in their communities.
