For many people, accessing the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) can be overwhelming and confusing. 

Our NDIS engagement team are here to break through some of the jargon and support our clients to access the and NDIS wherever possible, support you to access the NDIS so that you receive NDIS plans that offer you the best quality of life possible.

Our engagement Coordinators endeavour to make sure our clients receive NDIS plans that offer them the best quality of life possible from the funding available to them.

Barbara’s story:

Barbara has lived with MS for almost 20 years. 

“It was early in 2016 when I asked if I was eligible for funding through the NDIS. I received two different responses, the all too familiar ‘no’ and then the follow up of ‘maybe’,” Barbara said.

“I decided to place the NDIS into a basket of ‘too hard’ and I am too tired to fight another battle.”

After spending some time in rehab due to an exacerbation of her symptoms in 2017, Barbara was once again encouraged to access the NDIS.

“Surely, if I read the NDIA literature, met and addressed the guidelines, applied in their required format and had supporting evidence from my clinicians I would be eligbile for the NDIS,” Barbara thought.

“But the 24 pages of application and evidence was denied.”

Feeling disheartened but knowing she needed to get some help, Barbara contacted MSL. With her updated application, some new evidence and help from Pauline her Engagement Coordinator, Barbara asked for a review of submission,

“After Pauline sat in and supported my planning session to my advantage, my application was finally accepted.”

“Thank you, MSL!”
