Some Providers We Work With...


Understanding NDIS and How to Find an NDIS Provider in Ballina, Grafton, or Lismore

The NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) provides funding packages for thousands of Australians with disabilities that affect their physical, cognitive, neurological, sensory, or social functioning. The number of people eligible for the NDIS is expected to continue growing in the coming years. Once an NDIS participant turns 65, they may choose to remain in the program or receive their support through aged care services. If an individual develops a disability after the age of 65, they will receive aged care services.

Millions of Australians have disabilities, but many of them do not meet the eligibility criteria for the NDIS. These people may still receive assistance through the new program that provides information and referrals to help connect people with disabilities and their caregivers and families with community support. The NDIS is not a replacement for the Disability Support Pension, which provides income support for people from 16 through 65 with disabilities that make them unable to work. The NDIS offers additional funding to help meet the special needs of these individuals such as home health care or funding for wheelchairs.

The importance of the NDIS

A Productivity Commission report in 2011 found that existing disability services were inefficient and underfunded. The Commission recommended a new system, one of individual funding packages that individuals with disabilities could use to purchase the support they needed. Before the NDIS, there was much disparity in the support services offered by disability service providers. A person who needed support services was assigned to one provider and restricted to the specific supports that they provided. It was challenging to change providers, too. The goal of the NDIS is to grant each person the support they need depending on their situations, conditions, and requirements.

Are you eligible for the NDIS?

Whether you are looking for information about the NDIS in Ballina, Grafton, or Lismore, you can use this eligibility checklist to see whether you may be eligible. If you are, you can apply for support. Once your application is accepted, you can then speak with a representative about your situation, existing support services, and future goals. Typical support people receive include help with personal care tasks, equipment such as hearing aids or wheelchairs, various types of therapy, participation in social activities, and transport services.
