What is the NDIS?
NDIS stands for National Disability Insurance Scheme. The NDIS is a federally funded program that provides financial assistance to people with intellectual, physical, sensory, cognitive (such as short-term memory impairment) or psychosocial (as a result of a mental health condition) disabilities, as well as early intervention services for children with developmental delays.
While the NDIS is a fantastic resource for everyone with a disability or those who help individuals with disabilities and provides billions of dollars in funding, there are some requirements that have to be fulfilled before NDIS funding can be accessed. The majority of its funding is exclusively aimed at people with a permanent and serious disability.
