What is the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance scheme provides eligible individuals a flexible, whole-of-life approach to the support needed to pursue their goals and aspirations, and participate in daily life. The NDIS is designed for individual choice and control. It focuses on helping people to be part of the community and provides certainty they will receive the support they need over their lifetime.

The NDIA stands for the National Disability Insurance Agency. It is the Government agency that implements, delivers and manages the NDIS to ensure that people with disability get the support they need.
