The NDIS will provide all Australians under the age of 65 who have a permanent and significant disability with the supports they need to live an ordinary life.
The NDIS funds supports that are reasonable and necessary for you to achieve your goals.
Everyone’s needs and goals are different.
That’s why the NDIS provides you with the flexibility to manage your individual support needs. It also means your experience with the NDIS might be different to another person’s.
Your first plan with the NDIS will continue to give you the support you need now.
It will make sure you have time to learn more about all of your options with the NDIS and consider your goals for your next plan.
The NDIS will support you throughout your life for as long as you need it,
so this pathway will continue on, and you’ll update your plan as your needs change.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing disability support. The National Disability Insurance Agency is responsible for delivering the NDIS.
