What is NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme, or NDIS is run by the National Disability Insurance Agency, or NDIA.

The NDIS is one component of the National Disability Strategy which brings community, government and industry together to address the challenges faced by people with disability, and ensures they are supported by mainstream services such as health, education and transport and the wider community.

The aim of the NDIS is simple: To provide Australians who are born with or acquire a permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to live and enjoy an ordinary life. The vision of the NDIS is also simple: To build independence, and increase opportunities and social participation for people living with disability in Australia.

The NDIS consists of two parts: NDIS funded supports for eligible participants, and Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (or ILC which is all about connecting your with your community) – for all people with disability. People with disability who are eligible to become NDIS participants will receive funded support. Each NDIS participant has a plan that focuses on building their independence, and increasing opportunities. This could mean participating in activities in your community, getting a job or learning a new skill.

The important thing is that the participant has choice and control of the supports they need to live the life they want. By 2020 around 460,000 people with disability living in Australia will have a funded plan under the NDIS. The second part of the NDIS is Information, Linkages and Capacity Building or ILC. ILC is for all people with disability, whether they are an NDIS participant or not.
