The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a program of the Australian Government that provides funding and support to people living with disabilities. The NDIS services aim to empower people by providing them with choice and control over the support that they receive. NDIS funding also gives families and caregivers peace of mind, knowing that their loved ones will have the support they need to live an independent life.

Here is an overview of NDIS supports for disabled people and how they work to empower people living with disabilities.

Personal care 

Managing personal care can be challenging for people living with disabilities. The NDIS can help fund the necessary support channels to assist with daily tasks such as showering, dressing and eating. These supports empower the individual and give them the confidence to go about their everyday lives.

The NDIS can also help fund equipment and modifications to make homes more accessible. This could include grab rails, wheelchair ramps or modifying doorways. These supports will make it easier for you to move around your home and make everyday tasks simpler.

Emergency and respite care

Caregivers of people living with disabilities often need a break from their responsibilities. The NDIS can help fund emergency and respite care so that you can take a break knowing that your loved one is in safe hands. This support can give you the time you need to recharge and provide peace of mind that your loved one is being well cared for.

Transport and travel assistance

Access to independent and dependable transportation is critical for people with disabilities. The NDIS can fund specialised transportation as well as modifications to your current vehicle to make it more accessible. This will enable you to travel independently, allowing you to go where you want when you want.

Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI)

If your child is between the ages of 0 and 6 and has been diagnosed with a developmental delay or disability, they may be eligible for NDIS early intervention supports. Early intervention can make a significant difference in your child’s development, so it’s crucial to begin as soon as possible.

Community & social activities

The NDIS may be able to provide funding for a person to participate in community activities that they enjoy. This could include going to the movies, taking horseback riding lessons or joining a sports team. Community access support allows the person to socialise and make new friends while also achieving their goals.

Managing life stages

The NDIS can assist people in making major life changes such as starting school, going to university, or finding work. These kinds of assistance are truly empowering because they equip people with the knowledge and confidence to deal with whatever life throws at them. When a person reaches adulthood, the NDIS can assist them in developing the skills and abilities required to live as independently as possible. This could include things like learning to cook, budgeting and taking public transportation. People with disabilities can achieve anything they set their minds to with the NDIS.

Therapeutic support

People living with disabilities often need extra support to reach their full potential. The NDIS can fund therapy services like speech therapy, occupational therapy and physiotherapy. These services can help people living with disabilities develop new skills and improve their quality of life.
