The NDIS is Australia’s first national Scheme for people with disability. It provides funding directly to individuals.
What is the NDIS?
There are around 4.3 million Australians who have a disability. Within the next five years the NDIS will provide an estimated 500,000 Australians who have permanent and significant disability with funding for supports and services. For many people, it will be the first time they receive the disability support they need.
