What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a government-funded scheme backed by $29 billion per year to support both people with disabilities and those who wish to support them. The National Disability Insurance Scheme was implemented to help promote the health, wellbeing, independence and safety of those living with a disability in Australia.

The NDIS was designed to fund eligible people living with a disability so that they gain increased time with their family and friends, remain independent, continue to learn and grow to access new skills and to be an active part of their community. The NDIS is growing constantly, and the need for NDIS providers increases every year.

Australians are being supported for the first time, and each day new participants are joinging the scheme.

The way supports and services are accessed by individuals living with a disability is changing, and so is the disability sector.

Along with these changes, there is an increasing demand for people who are passionate about providing high quality, safe and carefully considered support services to people with a disability. Becoming a Registered NDIS Provider means you have the opportunity for the following:
