There are around 4.3 million Australians who have a disability. At the end of 2021, the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) was provided support to about 490,000 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
