National Disability Insurance Scheme

National Disability Insurance Scheme

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a national scheme that provides service and support funding for Australians who have a permanent and significant disability.

If you have a psychosocial disability, you may be eligible for the NDIS.

Psychosocial disability is a term used to describe a disability that may arise from a mental health condition.

Who can help you start your plan?

A Local Area Coordinator (LAC) will help you to understand and use your NDIS plan. Your LAC will show you how to use the myplace portal and connect you with support.

The National Disability Insurance Agency may fund a support coordinator in your NDIS plan if you need more help coordinating your supports and services.
