FAQ

What is the NDIS?

The NDIS is the new disability scheme that allows people with a disability to choose the services and supports that they require based on their particular needs. The NDIS works with people with a disability, their families and communities to provide greater choice and control. 
The NDIS also provides opportunity to people in the community to become providers. This allows people to access different forms of employment or develop their own business.
