National Disability Insurance Scheme Overview

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing individualised support for people with an impairment or condition that is likely to be permanent or a developmental delay that effects their ability to take part in everyday activities.

The NDIS provides eligible people a flexible, whole-of-life approach that supports people to pursue their goals and aspirations and participate in daily life.

Who is Eligible for the NDIS

To access Our Lady of Consolation’s services through the NDIS, participants’ need to meet the NDIS access requirements.

To be eligible for NDIS service, you must be a younger person (under 65 years of age), an Australian citizen or a permanent resident living in Australia and currently need support from a person or assistive equipment in order to:

  • understand and be understood by other people
  • make and keep friends and cope with feelings and emotions
  • understand, remember and learn new things
  • get out of bed and move around the home and outside the home
  • take a bath or shower, dress and eat
  • do daily jobs, handle money and make decisions.

Or you might need supports now in order to reduce your support needs in to the future. Supports that might:

  • reduce the impact of your impairment or condition or developmental delay
  • stop the impact of your impairment or condition from getting worse
  • strengthen your informal supports, such as helping a carer to keep supporting you.
