Understanding NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the National Government way of providing support for Australians with a disability, including their families and carers. The NDIS has been designed to allow participants to have greater choice and control over the support that they receive and the services that suit them best.

The NDIS provides eligible participants with an individualised plan and funding for the supports that are necessary and reasonable for them to achieve their goals. Participants with an NDIS plan can control what support they receive and who provides this support to allow them the flexibility to live how they choose. When navigating the NDIS, Abilities Enabled can support you as much or as little as you need. We have answered some of your questions you might have about the NDIS below.

Children under 18 years old may meet the NDIS requirements if:

What is an NDIS plan?

Your NDIS plan is a document that lists your goals and the support you need. If you need paid support, they will be listed with a budget amount you can spend on those supports. The NDIS plan is your plan and it’s all about you.
