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 persons up to 65 years of age, who are eligible for NDIS support are currently being transitioned into the scheme.
