National Disability Insurance Scheme

The NDIS is an Australian-wide way of funding services and supports for people living with a disability.
 
The most significant and far reaching change under the NDIS is that it will provide individualised funding to people with a disability based on their needs. This gives individuals far greater choice and control over the ‘how, when, what and where’ of accessing the services they need or want.
 

Get ready for the NDIS

There are a number of information sessions and courses for people with a disability, their families and carers being held in Hume.
