What Is The NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an Australian Government initiative for people with a disability. The scheme is run by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA). The NDIS became available in Rockhampton in November 2017. The NDIS supports people aged between 0-65 years with a permanent and significant disability that affects their ability to take part in everyday activities.

The NDIS provides funding to participants to purchase a range of supports aimed at increasing their independence, inclusion and social and economic participation. Participants will be supported to think about goals across different areas of their life, including daily living, home, health and well-being, lifelong learning, work, social and community participation, relationships, choice and control.

The NDIS gives more choice and control over how, when and where supports are provided, and gives individuals certainty that they will receive the support they need over their lifetime. It also focuses on early intervention, where getting support early can reduce the impact of disability on individuals or their children.
