The NDIS offers eligible participants personalised funding, depending on their specific needs and aspirations. Participants can then utilise this financial support to access various support services, including assistive technology, personal care, therapy, and employment assistance. Since its launch, the NDIS was rolled out progressively across different regions of Australia, and it has profoundly impacted the lives of participants and their families. Over the years, the scheme has brought about several positive changes in the disability support sector, promoting inclusivity and providing individuals with disabilities the opportunity to reach their full potential.
The scheme acknowledges the diverse needs of individuals throughout their lifespan and aims to provide ongoing support accordingly. The management of the NDIS is entrusted to the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), which collaborates closely with participants, their families, and caregivers to develop customised plans that cater to their distinct requirements and objectives.
