What is a National Disability Insurance Scheme Plan?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a government funded scheme that provides funding to eligible people with a disability to gain greater independence, access to new skills, jobs, or volunteering in their community, and an improved quality of life.
A National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plan outlines your goals, aspirations and supports you require to overcome any barriers to independence. Your National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plan gives you access to funding that can be used to fund services that help you on your way to employment, like Youth Employment Assistance.
