The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is Australia’s first national Scheme for people with disability. It provides funding directly to individuals.
The NDIS provides support to eligible people with intellectual, physical, sensory, cognitive and psychosocial disability. Early intervention supports can also be provided for eligible people with disability or children with developmental delay.
The NDIS can help you achieve goals in many aspects of your life. It’s about your choices, the decisions you and those closest to you make, your involvement in your community, your education and employment.
It’s also about your overall health and wellbeing, and creating opportunities for you to have greater participation in a more inclusive community.
If you have a child with a disability, the changes will significantly enhance the quality of life you envisage for them. They will grow up without the barriers to a full life that they may have otherwise experienced.
For adults, the changes will empower people to make your own choices, live your life and define your future.
To be eligible for funded supports, you must
- Have a significant and permanent disability
- Meet age and residency requirements
- Meet either the disability or early intervention requirements
AMPS can work with you and those closest to you, to make the application and transition process to the NDIS as simple as possible.
