The National Disability Insurance Scheme or NDIS provides all Australians under 65 living with significant and permanent disability with funding for supports and services.
The NDIS funds a range of supports and services that support the independence of the person living with disability and develop increased participation in community and workplace participation. These supports align with the goals and ability of the participant and may include support in education, employment, social independence, living arrangements and health and wellbeing.
Every person living with a disability has different needs. Your NDIS funding is there to help you meet your short and medium to long-term goals in your NDIS plan.
There are three types of support budgets that may be funded in your NDIS plan.
