National Disability Insurance Service (NDIS)
What is the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing community linking and individualised supports for people with permanent and significant disability, their families and carers.
The NDIS provides all Australians under the age of 65 with a permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to enjoy an ordinary life.
Under the NDIS a range of support services are provided by non-government organisations. Families can choose who provides their child’s support and where they would like the supports delivered.
In the ACT, the NDIS works with two organisations to support people with disability to engage with the NDIS these include:
- EACH (the Early Childhood Early Intervention Partner for families with children aged 0 – 6) P: 1300 003 224 and;
- Feros Care 1300 090 256
