National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Funding
RIDBC and the NDIS
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing support to people with disabilities, their families and carers. The focus of the NDIS is to give you choice and control over your disability support. This is provided through individualised funding to assist you to achieve your goals.
All eligible NDIS participants receive an individualised support plan. The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) assists you and your family to develop this plan, taking account of personal goals and the specialist support required to achieve those goals.
As part of RIDBC providing support to you or your family as you access the NDIS, we have launched a website that guides families, adults and health professionals through the services that we provide – including where these services might best be accessed. This site allows you to run through a very quick questionnaire to access a tailored page of information about how we can help you or your family under NDIS. With answers to a few simple questions we can tailor a unique results page for you that shows:
- Information on relevant RIDBC services that you might be benefit from
- Location specific information such as your closest centre and how to register for NDIS information sessions we are running in your local area
- Stories of people in a similar situation to yours that RIDBC has helped.
