National Insurance Disability Scheme

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is an independent statutory agency in Australia. Its role is to implement the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), which will support a better life countless Australians with a significant and permanent disability, as well as their families and carers.

How Does the NDIS Work?

The NDIS is the first national scheme for people with disability in Australia, delivering funds directly to individual participants. This funding goes towards services deemed ‘reasonable and necessary’ for helping participants achieve their goals, both in the short and long-term.

Supports and services fall under three categories:

    • Core: support for daily living activities
    • Capital: support for an investment, such as assistive technology or home modifications
    • Capacity Building: support to help the individual grow their independence and skills

Once you are deemed eligible for an NDIS Plan, the next step is to create your plan. There are people and organisations who can help with this, such as Support Coordinators like Careon. For assistance with your NDIS Plan, get in touch with Careon today.
