The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an insurance scheme, implemented by the Australian Federal Government, to support people who have a significant and permanent disability that requires assistance with everyday activities. This includes people whose disability is attributed to intellectual, cognitive, neurological, sensory or physical impairment, or a psychiatric condition.
The scheme is being phased in nationally and is due to be fully implemented by 1 July 2019. In South Australia children aged from birth to 17 years who are eligible for NDIS support are currently being transitioned into the scheme, but this will be extended to include adults in the coming years.
Lifelong Pathways was started to help families access NDIS Support.
