What is the NDIS?
There are around 4.3 million Australians who have a disability. Within the next five years, the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will provide more than $22 billion in funding a year to an estimated 500,000 Australians who have permanent and significant disability. For many people, it will be the first time they receive the disability support they need.
The NDIS can provide all people with disability with information and connections to services in their communities such as doctors, sporting clubs, support groups, libraries and schools, as well as information about what support is provided by each state and territory government.
Am I eligible?
Answer some simple questions to see if you may be able to apply for the NDIS. These questions are just a guide, the final decision about eligibility is up to the NDIA.
How do I apply?
If you meet the eligibility criteria you can ask to become a participant by completing an Access Request Form.
If you are already approved by NDIS, contact our clinic and book an initial appointment. Upon the initial contact please notify us that you are NDIS approved and your NDIS registration number and how your fund is being managed.
You and your allied health provider will then be able to work out a service agreement/plan at your first appointment
If you are not a participant in the NDIS but think you may be eligible the NDIS website has a very simple checklist to determine your eligibility to apply for supports. Our clinicians may be able to support you with your journey of application if needed.
