NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme)
Disability Service has transitioned to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). NDIS will provide all Australians under the age 65 who have a disability that is likely to be permanent and significant with the supports they need to live an ordinary life. The NDIS funds support what are reasonable and necessary for people with disabilities to achieve their goals. If you are not currently receiving supports, you will need to contact us via www.ndis.gov.au
(Note) Disability services provide a Continuity of Support grant to eligible clients who are not eligible for NDIS however this is a temporary grant.
