What is the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme supports people with a permanent and significant disability that affects their ability to take part in everyday activities. The NDIS gives more choice and control over how, when and where supports are provided.
What can Windarring do for me?
Windarring is NDIS ready and will assist you through the transition process. We work with adults with disabilities to identify the supports you need to live your life. Supports may help you achieve many goals including independence, involvement in your community, education, employment and health and wellbeing. Windarring staff will ensure that all clients are empowered and have full choice and control.
Please contact email@example.com to help you increase your independence and achieve life goals.
Who administers the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Agency delivers the NDIS which is being introduced across Australia and is expected to be fully operational by 2018. The NDIS is a new way of providing services and individualised support for people with disability, their families and carers. Read more on the NDIS website: www.ndis.gov.au
How do I apply for the NDIS?
If you are a person with disability you must be assessed against the access requirements. You can use the NDIS Access Checklist to check if you are eligible. Read more on the NDIS website.
The Disability Support Register
The Disability Support Register (DSR) is a database maintained by Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). This is a list of all the people who have already been assessed and have a need for funding (Individual Support Packages) to purchase supports that meet their needs or to pay for supported accommodation. The DSR was the old system used to allocate funding and vacancies. This is being replaced by the NDIS. Windarring can assist you to apply for ongoing disability support.
