What is the National Disability Insurance Scheme?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (known as the NDIS) is a new national Government initiative for people living with a permanent and significant disability. The scheme provides lifelong support, where people have more choice and control over how they receive services. Supports may include allied health and therapy services, equipment, personal care, domestic help, and getting involved in the community.

This service is funded by the Victorian Government
