NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is how the Australian government provides funding to people with disabilities to make sure they have the supports and equipment they need to live an ordinary life.

Below are links with information about the NDIS and some ways you can prepare yourself to go to a planning meeting with an NDIS planner.
