NDIS: National Disability Insurance Scheme
What is the NDIS?
NDIS stands for National Disability Insurance Scheme.
It is the new system of providing supports to people with a permanent and significant disability.
The NDIS takes a whole of life approach to working with participants and is based around the development of individualized, flexible supports.
“The NDIS is the insurance that gives us all peace of mind. Disability could affect anyone and having the right support makes a big difference.” (NDIS, 2016)
