NDIS – The National Disability Insurance Scheme
The NDIS represents a landmark change in disability funding within Australia. It presents the opportunity for you to ensure that your child’s support needs are more fully funded with greater self-determination and choice. Its aim is to ensure that people with disabilities receive the necessary and essential funding to provide services to meet their specific needs, access to adaptive equipment, and increased participation in the wider community. It may also present parents and carers with increased support. The intention of the scheme is to address perceived gaps in disability funding and ensure that funds are directed where they are most needed.
