NDIS? What is it? We simplify it for you

What is the NDIS?

NDIS stands for National Disability Insurance Scheme. Under this scheme, people with any form of disability and under the age of 65 years receive full support that they need. NDIS is ideal for people with a constant disability that hinders their ability to conduct even the necessary day to day activities. 

For the ones that qualify for the NDIS, they get all the necessary support to lead an everyday life and pursue the activities that they desire. Under NDIS, you will receive funds that will support your every need.
