Information for people with disability, NDIS providers and disability workers.Start Here
The NDIS is available to Australian citizens, permanent residents and special category visa holders who reside in Australia, are aged between seven to 65 and have a disability caused by a chronic condition. You qualify for the NDIS if you require assistance or support to complete daily chores requiring specialist tools or other people's disability-specific assistance.
To request funding for "fair" and "essential" help and services, participants instead develop NDIS plans based on their own needs and circumstances. There is no set sum of the amount you will receive from the program, according to the NDIS website. NDIA members will then review and give their approval.
