The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a single, national scheme that funds reasonable and necessary support to help people with disability reach goals throughout life. It also supports carers of people with disability.

The NDIS works with people individually and recognises that people have different needs and goals. It gives people choice about the support they need to live the life they want.

If your child has a significant and permanent disability or developmental delay, the NDIS helps you and your child get services and support in your community. It also gives you funding for support like early intervention therapies or one-off items like wheelchairs or communication devices.

The NDIS is run by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).
