National Disability Insurance Scheme

‚ÄčThe National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a national approach to providing individualised support and services for people under the age of 65 who have a permanent and significant disability.

The NDIS takes a lifetime approach, investing in people with disability early to improve their outcomes later in life.

The NDIS is administered by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).
