Learn more about the NDIS
The NDIS is a new way of providing individualised support for eligible people with permanent and significant disability, their families and carers.
The NDIS website, http://www.ndis.gov.au/ holds a wealth of information to help you understand the concept, benefits, and processes involved, but it can be complex to navigate through the many pages of the site.
