What is the NDIS?

The NDIS supports people with a permanent and significant disability that affects their ability to take part in everyday activities. It is a big change to the existing human services system and how those with a disability access services and aims to improve the lives of people with a disability in Australia.

It is underpinned by principles of:

choice and control – when, where and by whom supports are provided
early intervention
 – where getting early supports can reduce the impact of disability on a child or care
