The NDIS is a new way of providing community linking and individualised support for people with permanent and significant disability, their families and carers.
It understands that everyone’s needs, preferences and aspirations are different. The scheme provides information and referrals, support to access community services and activities, personal plans and supports over a lifetime.
The first stage of the scheme launched in Tasmania, South Australia, the Hunter area in NSW and the Barwon area in Victoria from July 2013. Sites in the ACT and NT will launch from July 2014. The National Disability Insurance Scheme will be rolled out across Queensland from 2016.
Gateways Support Services is a NDIS Service Provider. If you have any queries about the scheme please contact us directly on 03 5221 2984, and we’ll be happy to help.
The scheme was known as DisabilityCare Australia and reverted back to its original name of National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), on 20th September 2013.
