What Is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an Australian government-led initiative created to help support those living with a cognitive, intellectual, physical sensory, and/or psychological disability. With around 4.3 million Australians living with disability, the NDIS initiative helps eliminate barriers to living a fulfilling and inclusive life.


The Australian Department of Human Services states that the NDIS provides those living with disability, information and connections to services within their community, such as doctors, support groups, schools, and libraries. However, the support that the NDIS will offer can be in the form of anything from informational services through to financial and aide assistance.


Within the next 5 years, the National Disability Insurance Scheme will provide around $22 billion of yearly funding to an estimated 500,000 Australians aged under 65, who are living with a permanent or significant disability. For many, this is going to be the first time in their life that they will receive the disability support they need.


What Does the NDIS Provide?

The NDIS was created to help those living with disability eliminate the barriers to living a fulfilling and productive life. The NDIS does so by funding a range of supports and services including areas such as:

  • Education;
  • Employment;
  • Social participation;
  • Independence;
  • Living arrangements; and
  • Health and well-being.


The Australian Department of Human Services also states that these supports and services must comply with the following to be considered reasonable and necessary:

  • Be connected to a participant’s disability;
  • Do not include daily living costs unrelated to their disability support needs;
  • Represent value for money;
  • Work effectively for the participant; and
  • Take into consideration any support given by other government services, their family, careers, networks, and the community.
