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 Narre Warren.
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 Narre Warren 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 Narre Warren 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 Narre Warren 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 Narre Warren 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.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme has come to help many people living with disabilities in Narre Warren to be able to lead better and more comfortable lives. Even though there are many different kinds of support that the disabled receive, applying for NDIS is one of the most convenient and best ways through which you can be able to get everything working just fine for you if you are looking to improve the way you live. People with disabilities are faced with many different kinds of challenges depending on the kind of disability they are facing hence to be able to change their lives for the better, they will need to make sure that they have an insurance scheme that can change the way they see things.
One of the things that you will be required to do in order to be able to receive the government support through NDIS, there are a number of things that you will be required to do and that are going to determine whether you are going to receive the support that can change the way that you lead your life. You will have to first ensure that you are eligible to receive the NDIS support before you can even contact the nearest NDIS representative in your area to determine whether you have what it takes.
After ascertaining that you qualify for NDIS, you will then be expected to make sure that you contact a NDIS representative in your area. The government has made a lot of effort to ensure that they have as many NDIS representatives as possible who are going to help you when it comes to making your application and which can really impact on the way that you are going to make your application. It is important to make sure that you make your application within a radius that is convenient enough for you and not too far from where you live within Narre Warren. Going way too far can become a challenge especially if your disability does not allow you to travel to far areas.
You will be required to schedule on the day you are going to visit the NDIS agents after you have been able to determine what best suits you. Most of the time, the agents are always willing to schedule an appointment with them immediately and it is less likely that they are going to take a long period of time before they can give you a call to attend a meeting with them as soon as possible.
The moment that you attend the meeting with your NDIS agent, they are going to let you know all the information that you are not aware of. They will let you know the advantages of the scheme and how it is going to help you to be able to achieve the best results that there could possibly be. They will go through the situation of the kind of disability that you are facing and define the best way to be able to make the application for you. You should take advantage of this insurance scheme in order to make sure that you are changing the way you lead your life with your disability.
