National Disability Insurance Scheme

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is the statutory agency tasked to implement the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

The NDIS aims to provide community linking and individualised support for people with permanent and significant disability, their families and carers.

The scheme aims to:

  • identify supports to help people with disability to live their life and to achieve their goals, including independence, community involvement, education, employment, health and well-being; and
  • provide people with disability choice and control over how, when and where their reasonable and necessary supports are provided, and offers certainty of access to support over their lifetime.

It is planned that full transition to the NDIS will be achieved by July 2019.

Information to support members to prepare for and work with the NDIS, include:

Members with queries regarding the NDIS should contact the Association's Disability Project Consultant.
