National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

We are ready and waiting to support people living with multiple sclerosis to access the NDIS, following the announcement of the full rollout plans for New South Wales and Victoria from July 2016.

We commend the federal, Victorian and New South Wales state governments. This momentous committment will be life-changing for people living with the disease.

The NDIS is a new way of providing individualised support and services for eligible people living with a permanent and significant impairment. Hundreds of people affected by multiple sclerosis are accessing NDIS-funded support and services across Australia.

We're here to keep you informed about NDIS developments, help you understand what this means for you and help you prepare for entry into the scheme.

We've broken down the what, why, how, who, when and where of NDIS, to help you understand what it could mean for you. We also have several publications if you want to dive deeper into the background, tools to help you prepare for your conversation with the National Disability Insurance Agency, stories of those who are already participants of the scheme, and answers to your common questions.
