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 Mount Waverley.
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 Mount Waverley 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 Mount Waverley will be happy to take any questions you may have.

People living with disabilities in Mount Waverley have had a rough period of time trying to get things done the right way and without much of a problem. Even though most of them know the best ways on how they can be able to find such kind of support, it is important to always make sure that you have an insurance cover that can help you in the event you may need it. With the newly created National Disability Insurance Scheme, you will be able to change the way you live and improve it to a great deal. The government has partnered with many organizations to ensure that the needs of the disabled are properly handled. Here are some of the things that you need to know as a person living with disability.
To begin with, if you are interested in applying for NDIS, you will be required to find a representative in Mount Waverley who will guide you through the process. In most instances, people are not always sure about what to expect from the plan hence the best ways to make sure that they are properly handled is by finding a representative who has all the information that you may be looking for and getting things done the right way.
Once you have found a representative that you feel you can work with, then you will be required to schedule a day when you will visit them to proceed with the application process. In most cases, they should be within your area so that it is easier for you to be able to maneuver around it. You will not be allowed to go for a representative that is way too far from your local area as it will mean you will spend a lot of time and hence making your situation worse.
On the first visit to your NDIS representative in Mount Waverley should generally be about discussing the challenges that you face with the disability you have and how it impacts on your life. You will be allowed to give your side of the story and also help them to understand the problem that you are facing so that they can be able to determine on how they can best be able to help you in the application process. You will also be required to show evidence that you are an Australian citizen and you meet all the conditions set for a person to be able to receive the government support that you are trying to apply for.
After holding a thorough conversation with the representative, they will then help you understand the other aspects that you have to figure in and that are going to help to be able to know on the way forward. You can ask questions along the way in order to get things clarified to you without much of a problem. They will help you in setting up goals and coming up with a plan that will guide you on the best ways to go about with the application process to ensure that it is approved and won’t have to wait for corrections later.
