The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing funding to people with a permanent and significant disability to access the support they need to live and enjoy their life.
The NDIS funds services and support that relate to a person’s disability to help them achieve their goals and meet their needs.
NDIS participants control the support they receive, when they receive it, and how provides it. Everyone who is eligible to access the NDIS has an individual plan that lists their goals and the funding they have received.
At UCWB we offer support for NDIS participants in the following ways:
- Core Supports including in-home care, daily support as well as community participation
- Support Coordination
- Improved daily living skills – early childhood intervention supports for participants under 7 years
- Improved daily living skills – therapeutic support for participants over 7 years
