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".
