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 Chirnside Park.
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 Chirnside Park 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 Chirnside Park will be happy to take any questions you may have.

We also offer early intervention services that can help to reduce the impacts of a person’s disability and help them to build the skills and confidence they need to achieve their ideal lifestyle.
Home care services
We have home care services for all levels of assistance. Whether a participant just needs help with tasks around the house or requires full support on an everyday basis, we can match you with a local Chirnside Park carer that will be able to meet your needs.
We can facilitate recreational and civic activities in a community setting to give NDIS participants the opportunity to build and refine social skills, as well as provide opportunities for people to get involved in the Chirnside Park community.
To get the most out of your NDIS services, we can provide a support coordinator that will help participants and their families with the more complex aspects of the NDIS. When it comes to managing funds, we can ensure that you know what the best use of your money is to get the best assistance possible.

Are you a person living with a disability in Chirnside Park? Have you heard about the National Disability Insurance Scheme? Do you know that you may be eligible? Have you tried to apply and get your application made clear? If not, there are many things that you may need to understand before you can apply and, in the process, have your application going though. Most of the people are not aware of what needs to be done to be given the support from the government and the only way to know what is needed is to make sure that you apply through a NDIS representative in Chirnside Park. Below are some of the things that you need to know before you can apply for NDIS and what it means.
One of the first things you should think about is the access to mainstream services such as health, education and housing. As a person living with disabilities, there are chances that you may not be able to access the main services that are being provided by the government. To access them it is important to make sure that you get the necessary support that you need. If you have not been able to attain such standards it is important to make sure that you understand the whole process and what is required of you.
If you have been battling most of your life with a disability and have not been able to afford the right equipment that you can use to lead a better life, you should consider getting the National Disability Insurance Scheme in Chirnside Park. Through the scheme, you will be able to find the necessary support that you need to live more independently and without much of a problem. They will be able to help you determine the kind of assistance you need and create your own personal plan on how you intend to benefit from the scheme to live better.
NDIS is quite unique and is there to ensure that people with disabilities set their own goals which they wish to attain and the best ways through which you can achieve the goals that you have set. There is no greater benefit than being able to determine the goals you want to achieve and creating your own plan on how you are going to achieve those goals. Your disability should not limit you on how you are going to get the best results that there could possibly be. The scheme is going to ensure you receive the much-needed help that is going to propel you into achieving great results over a period of 12 months.
Another reason as to why the scheme is important is that it is quite flexible and does not discriminate on the kind of disability you have in order to receive support. Basically, no matter the cause of the disability, where and when you got the disability, it will allow you to receive the much-needed support. You will only be required to visit the nearest NDIS representative who is going to guide you through the application process in order to get the support you are looking for.
