The NDIS provides funding for individual supports and services deemed to be reasonable and necessary for people with a disability to achieve their goals and aspirations.
Individuals who are eligible for the NDIS receive funding on an annual basis to purchase the supports, services, aids and equipment they require. Supports may help individuals achieve goals in many aspects of their life, including independence, involvement in their community, education, employment and health and wellbeing. The NDIS is about empowering people to choose how, when and where they receive the supports and services they need.
The NDIS has changed the way that disability services are delivered in Australia. It recognises that disability related support is an entitlement, and means you have a choice of service providers in an open market – it gives you more choice and control.
If you enter the NDIS, you will go through a planning process with a NDIS representative, to develop your individual NDIS plan and determine the funding you will receive.
Our experience can ensure you are thoroughly prepared and ready to access the best possible funding.
