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 Fairfield.
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 Fairfield 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 Fairfield will be happy to take any questions you may have.
Gentle Care Support Services offers a wide range of support services for people in Fairfield. We prioritise a kind and caring approach that gives the power to NDIS participants and helps them achieve the goals that they have chosen.
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 Fairfield 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 Fairfield 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.
Your assigned local area coordinator will be familiar with Fairfield, allowing them to help you choose services that are in your neighbourhood and that will work better for you and your family.

There are many challenges that people living with disabilities go through in their day-to-day life. Though there are some who have the access to health facilities and have the right equipment to be able to lead their lives well, there are some who have a major problem getting such kinds of things. It is for this reason that the government has come out with the aim of helping those who do not have access to such kind of equipment to be able to acquire them easily without much of a problem. Through the National Disability Insurance Scheme, the disabled will be able to get support from the government and also be able to lead a better life.
If you are a disabled person living in Fairfield, it is important that you contact the nearest NDIS representative who is going to help you understand more about what is covered and what is not covered. There is absolutely no need to ignore it even if you may be able to afford health facilities and have the equipment that you need to lead a better life. When you visit a NDIS representative you will learn more about what you need and why you should make your application without any delays. They will also give you more important information which will make sure that you are well informed about it more clearly.
There are many people who are not sure whether they qualify to receive the insurance scheme from the government since they do not have the right information. If you would like to know what is needed, you can contact the NDIS representative in your area who will be more than happy to help you through what you are looking for. In most instances, the people that have been offered the support by the government are Australian citizens and those who hold protected special category visas. It has not been offered to any other person who does not fall into this category.
Age is also playing a major role on whether you qualify for NDIS since it is being offered to people who are under the age of 65 years. Basically, even though you may be over the age of 65 years, there are other plans that have been set for them to be able to access such kind of help from the government. This insurance scheme is aimed at helping those that are below capped age limit and hence if you are older than that, you can seek other forms of help from the government using them.
One of the major benefits of this scheme is that it does not in any way affect any other form of support that you receive from family, friends and organizations. Once you have been approved to receive NDIS, the other forms of help that you receive will be affected in any way hence you can comfortably take advantage of it without any form of fear. Whether you have a career in place of who you pay, you will not be required to make any changes unless you find it necessary to make changes.
