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 Lilydale.
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 Lilydale 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 Lilydale will be happy to take any questions you may have.

The disabled people in the society are always faced with a lot of challenges which leave them at the mercy of their helpers. At times, they encounter issues which leave them discouraged and feeling unwanted and that should not be the case. Through the intervention of the government, people living with disabilities in Lilydale have the opportunity to overcome these challenges once they apply and they are accepted into the program. The introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme they will be able to access support from the government and that will greatly benefit them in many ways. Some of the reasons as to why you should consider applying for NDIS are discussed below.
One of the reasons as to why you should apply for NDIS is that it helps every person with equality. You will get your NDIS regardless of when and where the disability was acquired. Over the years, the government has felt overwhelmed by the needs of the disabled and to ensure that every person is properly covered, they opted for an approach that does not selectively cover people with disabilities. Through this insurance scheme, every person living with a disability that limits the way they function will be covered and it does not discriminate on where and when you got the disability from.
It will also help people with disabilities by providing services and lessening the expenses, medical costs and other inconveniences that they face in their daily chores. The disabled have a hard time trying to carry out different tasks around their daily lives and have to rely on others to assist them to be able to do certain things. However, with NDIS things will be made easier for them as they will be able to access all the necessary support they need without having to go through hard times. Whether it is medical costs or funding for equipment, the scheme will ensure that they are able to access such kind of support easily without discrimination.
With the help of healthcare facilities provided by NDIS, participants’ wellbeing and the employment opportunities will increase. The government has noted that the best way to be able to support the disabled in the society is by making sure that they understand what kind of disability they have, how to go about with it and also determine long lasting solutions to enable them lead better lives without much of a problem. They have found it fit to increase job opportunities for the disabled and also create accredited healthcare services for them which they can access any time they need medical help.
The introduction of NDIS is important to the lives of people living with disabilities in Lilydale and they do not have to worry about what they should expect from the government. Once you start the application process, your NDIS representative in your area will give you all the answers to the questions that you may have and that will enable you to understand why it is important to register. It is for that reason that if you have any disability that prevents you from carrying out your daily chores the right way, then you need not to wait anymore hence apply for NDIS right away.
