Choosing an NDIS provider can be one of the most difficult parts of the process. You want an organisation that will be able to provide you with the proper support to meet your goals and help you live the best life possible.
Gentle Care Support Services is a registered NDIS provider and supplies a wide range of support services to people living with a disability in Melbourne.
What is the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is dedicated to providing 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 entire lifetime and that affects your ability to complete everyday tasks.
In Victoria, over 100 000 people are benefiting from participation in the NDIS — for 40 000 of those people, this is the first time they have received the support services they need.
The scheme is implemented by the National Disability Insurance Agency, who will help participants develop an NDIS plan that details your personal goals, aspirations and any support you need to get you there (as well as funding). 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 lives.
As time passes, the NDIS plan you have in place 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 local service providers.

Take control of your care
Your wellbeing is of the utmost importance to us, which means we prioritise your goals and safety above all else. Our highly-trained workers strive to make sure they’re on the same page as you and your family to provide you with care that suits your unique needs.
We believe in providing people with disabilities with the choice and control they deserve and support NDIS participants to empower themselves. You know your needs best — we’re just here to make sure they’re looked after.
Choosing the right NDIS provider
There are many aspects that need to be considered when selecting a service from the range of NDIS providers out there. The person’s needs, the support an organisation can give them to live the best life possible, and the funding you have been allocated as part of your plan all will impact which NDIS provider you ultimately select.
Once you have decided on a Victorian NDIS provider, you will need to establish a service agreement that outlines what supports providers must deliver and how these will be supplied to a participant. For Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) support, you must sign a written service agreement; for all other support services, a written agreement is not required (though may be requested by individual service providers).
As a registered NDIS service provider, we are committed to providing people with disabilities the best care and support in Melbourne. We ensure that you have all the information you need to make a fully informed choice about the way you would like your services to be delivered.
Our NDIS support coordination staff are local to the area, allowing them to better determine what services in your vicinity will best work for you.
