What is the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) enables those living with permanent or significant disability to receive the support needed to boost overall quality of life.
The NDIS provides funding to eligible people based on individual needs; every NDIS participant has an individual plan that lists their goals and the funding they’ve received. People under an NDIS mental health plan can use their funding to get support and exposure to services that’ll increase opportunity and engagement with the local community. NDIS participants themselves control the support they receive, when they receive it, and who provides it.
How we can help
selectability offers both core and capacity building NDIS North Queensland budget support services. Funding is determined based on what is deemed ‘reasonable and necessary’ to achieve individual goals, in addition to the support offered by family, friends, government services and the community.
Alongside our NDIS funding assistance, selectability also works to assist those with disability or mental health strain through tailored, compassionate care.
