What is NDIS?

The NDIS was created to help people with permanent and significant disabilities with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to enjoy an ordinary life.

The NDIS provides:

  • An assessment of your application for disability support to identify your eligibility to receive government-funded support. The assessment is undertaken by the National Access Team (NAT).

  • If you are eligible for government-funded support, assistance in developing your care plan, and referrals and linkages to local supports. In setting up supports, you are assisted by a Local Area Coordinator (LAC), an NDIA employee who is located in your local community.

  • If you are not eligible for government-funded support, you can still receive some assistance by way of the LAC providing information and linkages to the different supports available in your local community.


A person eligible to receive government-funded disability support is called "a participant".

Accessing our services through the NDIS

Contact NDIS


Await approval

Make an Access Request through the NDIS by calling 1800 800 110.  If you are a person with a disability and would like to join the NDIS, you will need to meet its Access Requirements.

You’ll meet with an NDIS representative who’ll ask you questions about your daily life to help them work out the types of support and the amount of funding you’ll receive.

The NDIA will then send you a letter telling you whether or not you’ve been approved for NDIS funding.

Once you receive your
approval letter contact El Pinoy Care Services and we can begin to set up your development plan in collaboration with your NDIS Local Area Coordinator.
