Disability and Youth Services
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a national insurance scheme and a way of supporting people who are living with a permanent disability. The NDIS has changed the way that disability services are delivered. With NDIS, you are able to choose your services and how you want them delivered. It provides funding directly to individuals.
There are around 4.3 million Australians who have a disability. Within the next five years, the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will provide support an estimated 500,000 Australians who have permanent and significant disability. For many people, it will be the first time they receive the disability support they need. The NDIS can provide all people with disability with information and connections to services in their communities such as doctors, sporting clubs, support groups, libraries and schools, as well as information about what support is provided by each state and territory government.
With NDIS, disability support is delivered by approved providers. Organisations or individuals can apply to be a registered NDIS provider with the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission (NDIS Commission). Under the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission, registered providers are required to meet the NDIS Practice Standards and adhere to the NDIS Code of Conduct.
