What is the NDIS?

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

For Adults and Children Living with Disability

NDIS stands for National Disability Insurance Scheme.

The NDIS represents a landmark of important change by the Federal Government to disability support in Australia.

The aim is to deliver a life-long approach to supporting people with disability through individualised funding so they can receive care and support based on their individual needs, goals and aspirations. The NDIS provides people living with disability direct access to a national pool of funds. Each person’s budget for disability services and support is based on an assessment of their individual needs, both now and in to the future.

The NDIS uses an insurance approach similar to Medicare, which means that the costs of disability will be shared among the wider community. At StGiles, we’re excited about the opportunities this brings for our staff and operations to deliver even more person centred services and self-directed packages for people living with disability and their supporters.
