What is the NDIS?
The NDIS will provide all Australians under the age of 65 who have a permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to enjoy an ordinary life. The NDIS will help people with disability achieve their goals. This may include greater independence, community involvement, employment and improved well-being.
To become an NDIS participant a person must:
?Have a permanent disability that significantly affects their ability to take part in everyday activities;
?Be aged less than 65 when they first enter the NDIS;
?Be an Australian citizen or hold a permanent visa or a Protected Special Category visa; and
?Live in Australia where the NDIS is available.
Can I still receive support if I do not meet the access requirements for the NDIS?
?A person does not have to be an NDIS participant to receive support from the NDIS.
?The NDIS will connect people with disability, their families and carers, including people who are not NDIS participants, to disability and mainstream supports in their community.
?To find out more about information, links and referrals to community and mainstream support services visit www.ndis.gov.au or call 1800 800 110.
