What is NDIS?

NDIS is an initiative by the Australian government to provide support to Australians experiencing disability, their families and carers.

This initiative provides Australians under the age of 65 who experience permanent and significant disabilities with the reasonable and necessary support they require and to assist them in their daily lives, including community involvement, education, employment, health and wellbeing.

The NDIS takes a lifetime approach, investing in people with disability early, to improve their outcomes later in life.
