There are around 4.3 million Australians who have a disability. When it is fully rolled out, the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will provide about 460,000 Australians aged under 65, who have permanent and significant disability with funding for supports and services.
For many people, it will be the first time they receive the disability support they need.
The first step for participating is checking if you are eligible. You can find out more on the NDIS website at https://www.ndis.gov.au/applying-access-ndis
