The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides individualised support for eligible people with permanent and significant disability, their families and carers. NDIS assistance is not means tested and does not impact on income support such as the disability support pension or carer payments.
At this time, you must meet age and location requirements in order to access the NDIS. Information about eligibility is at www.ndis.gov.au/people-disability/access-requirements
If you are not in an NDIS location, you may be able to access existing disability services. For information about these services, go to www.ndis.gov.au/people-disability/other-services
State and territory health services provide a variety of support and services available for people with disability, their families and carers.
