The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

What is NDIS?

The NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) is a new way of providing support for people with permanent and significant disabilities, their family and carers. The NDIS provides an individualised, flexible and whole-person approach to support to help participants achieve their life goals.

NDIS also gives participants more choice around the supports they receive and greater access to a variety of services to meet individual needs and goals.

Who can access the NDIS?

The NDIS was developed for people with a permanent and significant disability which impacts on their daily activities. There are other eligibility criteria to access NDIS such as receiving the DSP. For more information on eligibility please use the NDIS Access Check List.

Wangarang Industries can meet with you and explain the services we provide under the NDIS. Please contact Wangarang Industries if you would like more information.

What happens when I am eligible for NDIS?

Once you are deemed eligible for the NDIS, the planning and assessment process will start. You will meet with a planner who will work with you to develop a plan of supports to help you achieve your goals.

You can have a parent, friend or advocate with you to make sure you get the supports you need and want in your plan. If one of your goals is employment, make sure you tell your NDIS planner so it can be included in your plan and you can access the right employment service for you.
