The NDIS scheme in Australia has now been rolled out in certain areas across the country to help improve quality of life for disabled citizens. The roll out will continue until 2018 where it will help an estimated 460,000 Australians have access to better support, better equipment and faster consultations with providers of their choosing, in order to reach their goals, and improve their quality of life through the use of a funded care package.
Who is eligible to be a participant in NDIS?
All Australians under the age of 65 who have a permanent and significant disability, are eligible to receive support from NDIS to access the reasonable and necessary supports that they need to enjoy an ordinary life.
How does the NDIS work?
Eligible participants will receive a plan based on their condition and level of needs. They will then take this NDIS package to a provider who will manage the NDIS plan on behalf of the client in order to meet their needs.
Prioviders can be individuals i.e. occupational therapists, physiotherapists etc, or organisations who supply a product, i.e. Seating Matters.
