What is the NDIS?

The NDIS provides services and support to people with disability.

NDIS stands for the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

National means all around Australia.

Disability can affect:

  • a person's senses - such as their sight or hearing

  • a person's ability to move or use their body

  • the way a person thinks, learns or understands

  • the way a person feels, or their mental health.

  Insurance is a service you pay for to protect yourself against problems in the future. For example, if you get a disability in the future, the insurance pays for the cost of your supports and services.

Scheme is a type of government program.
