What is the NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing support to Australians living with a significant and permanent disability. 

The NDIS provides eligible Australians with the reasonable and necessary support to live an ordinary life, and to be more independent, and to actively participate in their communities. 

It offers the person choice and control over how, when and where they use their supports to achieve their goals.

The IUIH NDIS Project team will do what they can to help you understand this new scheme and support you through it - including:

  • Understanding eligibility criteria
  • How to apply 
  • Preparing for a first NDIS plan
  • Attending a first planning meeting
  • Starting  a new NDIS plan
  • Requesting changes to your NDIS plan
