About the NDIS
What is the NDIS
Within the next five years, the NDIS will provide $22 billion in funding a year to an estimated 500,000 Australians aged under 65 to access these services.
The NDIS provides funding to eligible people based on their individual needs.
Every NDIS participant has an individual plan that lists their goals and the funding they have received. NDIS participants use their funding to purchase supports and services that will help them achieve their goals.
Everyone has different goals but they could include things like getting and keeping a job, making friends or participating in a local community activity. NDIS participants control the support they receive, when they receive it, and who provides it.
Who is eligible
If you are under 65 (or you care for a child), are an Australian citizen or Permanent or Special Category Visa holder, live with a permanent and significant disability you could be eligible for the NDIS.
More information on eligibility can be found on the NDIS website.
How to apply
If you meet the eligibility requirements and would like to apply for the NDIS you can contact the NDIS on 1800 800 110 and ask to ‘make an access request’.
If you are already receiving disability support services, the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) will contact you when the NDIS becomes available in your area.
