It supports people with a disability to live in their communities



The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides long-term support and respite for children and adults with a disability and their families. It supports people with a disability to live in their communities rather than having to depend on services in institutions. It is an initiative from the Australian Government, and it was officially launched in July 2013. The NDIS covers four main areas. They are:

A support and respite service

To enable people with disability to access support and respite when needed

Services for people with disability

This includes programs and services that NDIS improve the quality of life for people with disability

Connecting people with disability to appropriate services

The NDIS aims to provide financial assistance for individuals who require care and support. The NDIS funds are provided to help people with disability to have more time with family, friends and community. It supports people to learn new skills and obtain and maintain employment. It also helps people with disability to live in their local community.

The NDIS was made possible through changes to the NDIS Act (2013) and the National Disability Insurance Scheme Act 2013. The National Disability Insurance Agency was created in 2013 to administer the scheme. The National Disability Insurance Agency is also responsible for administering the other disability support payments available under the NDIS, which include:

  • The Carer Allowance.
