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 Malvern.
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 Malvern 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 Malvern will be happy to take any questions you may have.
Gentle Care Support Services offers a wide range of support services for people in Malvern. 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 Malvern 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 Malvern 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 Malvern, allowing them to help you choose services that are in your neighbourhood and that will work better for you and your family.

Are you a person living with a disability in Malvern? Do you have the right insurance cover for yourself? Have you been wondering how you are going to get funding to buy any special equipment that can improve your life? Do you want the support of the government to get your life on track even though you have a disability? If so, there are many different kinds of services that you can be able to access within Malvern and that can make your life better and feel more appreciated in the society. There is nothing more important than making sure that your life does not feel as though you are stuck on the same point or left feeling helpless. As such, NDIS has been introduced to put the needs of the disabled at heart and have their problems properly handled.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme is meant to deliver support that produces long term outcomes, maximizing opportunities for independence and productivity for people with disabilities. Even though there are many different forms of support that you may be receiving from family, friends, organizations and charities, there may be some form of support that you may not have had and which can leave you worried and without any hope of ever getting it. Through government support, you will be able to get long term solutions that are going to generally improve your life and give you the opportunity to be able to do things in a better way than you are currently doing.
It also aims at providing people with disability and their families regular care, support, therapy and equipment that they need. There are many needs that the disabled have to meet on a daily basis and which at times cannot be easily accessed. For some of the people living with disabilities, their biggest challenge is getting the equipment they need and to some extent the access to therapy services. However, NDIS Malvern is going to change the way you receive these services as they are properly taken care of and will enable you to feel more comfortable.
For many years, the disabled have been left on their own and to them they feel as though their needs are not being addressed in the right way. This has left them with low self esteem and also have little or no confidence at all. With NDIS, they are being encouraged to become more vibrant and boost their confidence and self esteem levels to enable them to feel as part of the community through participation in the social, cultural and economic growth of their local areas.
It is also important to note that NDIS encourages the independence of each and every participant. It is normally quite a challenge having to rely on others and even worse when you want to do something but cannot be able to do it without the help of a career. NDIS on the other hand is aiming at making sure that people with disabilities are able to enjoy life in the best way possible without feeling left out in the development of their communities.
