What is the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides support for Australians who are under 65 years old and have a permanent and significant disability; that is, a disability that is likely to last for your lifetime and that affects your ability to complete everyday tasks.

In Victoria, over 100 000 people benefit from participation in the NDIS — for 40 000 of those people, this is the first time they have received the support services they need. We are happy to be a small part of that here in Box Hill.

The scheme is implemented by the National Disability Insurance Agency, who help participants develop an NDIS plan that details your personal goals, aspirations and any support you need to get you there. Participants may only require support in certain areas of their life — travel, for example, or employment and community activities — while others may need more assistance to improve the quality of their everyday lives.

As time passes, your NDIS plan will inevitably change. Having a support coordination expert on your side will allow you to allocate all your funding properly, manage what services you need (and what ones you don’t) and connect you with Box Hill service providers.

Need Help With Your NDIS Plan?

To access the NDIS, you will need to apply to the National Disability Insurance Agency. Once accepted as a participant, you will work with the agency to come up with a plan that details your goals and the support that is needed to help you on your journey.

If you are having trouble with your NDIS application or want more information about the services and funding that will be available to you, our local area coordinator for Box Hill will be happy to take any questions you may have.

There are many challenges that people living with disabilities face in Box Hill hence there was an urgent need to make sure that their needs are well taken care of. Through the national and local government, they have introduced an insurance scheme that will see that people living with disabilities are taken care off and live a more independent life. Through the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme people living with disabilities can be able to access the right services which they may not have been able to access before. As such, if you are a person living with a disability within Box Hill it is important that you contact the nearest NDIS representative to be able to determine whether you qualify to get such support. Below are some of the reasons as to why you need to register for NDIS in Box Hill.

With NDIS you will be able to receive funding for reasonable and necessary support based on your individual needs and aspirations. To ensure that people living with disabilities are well taken care of, the government has made it a point to ensure that they personalize the kind of support that they offer to people living with disabilities. Since people have different kinds of disabilities, the scheme is there to ensure that they are able to be supported individually with the kind of disability they have.

It is also through the scheme that the government is aiming at increasing opportunities to build skills for everyday tasks, secure jobs and to participate in the community. There are many people with disabilities who do not have access to some of the most basic facilities and even jobs. Through the introduction of NDIS, they will now be able to participate in the community they are in and also get jobs which they can be able to perform which otherwise were not available to them. They no longer have to feel segregated and as not being part of the community, they live in.

People living with disabilities will also be able to choose the kind of support they need, when they want to receive it and where to get it. One of the major benefits of having to apply for NDIS is that you will be able to determine the kind of support you want and the way you want it given to you as a disabled person. It has been made clear that you, the person with a disability, will determine the kind of plan that you will use to be able to carry out your tasks without any limitations and with minimal dependence on other people.

It will also be up to the person with the disability to determine the kind of service providers they will use to deliver their support. No matter the kind of disability that you have and have been through, it is up to you to decide which service provider you are going to use to get the support and services from. It has given you so much independence which makes it even more interesting when you want to get your support.
