Many people have asked us, what is the NDIS? According to the NDIS website, the National Disability Insurance Scheme is the new way of providing support to Australians living with a disability, their families and carers. This is the biggest change in the disability sector we’ve ever seen.
The NDIS website describes the scheme as offering “any Australians under the age of 65, who have a permanent and significant disability, with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to enjoy and ordinary life”.
To get funding through the NDIS, you must have a plan. The NDIS works with people (and their family or carer as necessary) to develop and implement a plan. This is done by having a conversation with an NDIA representative.
The plan covers items such as the services, disability service providers, treatment and care needed from day to day. In the plan, participants also add goals that they would like to achieve. Once the plan is finalised, it is implemented.
Generally, the plan is implemented and set for 12 months, but this may vary from case to case. After the plan has been in place for this time, the NDIS will get in touch to schedule a review. During the review, participants can find which elements worked well, which ones did not, and they have a chance to make changes to the plan for the next 12 months.
