The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing support for people living with disability and takes a whole-of-life approach. It is designed to provide the right support according to each person’s needs and goals.

The NDIS will provide about 460,000 Australians under the age of 65 with a permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to live an ordinary life.

As an insurance scheme, the NDIS takes a lifetime approach, investing in people with disability early to improve their outcomes later in life.

The NDIS helps people with disability to:

  • Access mainstream services and support
  • Access community services and supports
  • Maintain informal support arrangements and
  • Receive reasonable and necessary funded supports

Assistance from the NDIS is not means tested and has no impact on income support such as the Disability Support Pension and Carers Allowance.
