What is a disability?

A disability is any condition that makes it more difficult for a person to do certain activities or interact with the world around them. These conditions, or impairments, may be cognitive, developmental, intellectual, mental, physical, sensory, or a combination of multiple factors. Impairments causing disability may be present from birth or occur during a person’s lifetime.

 

What is NDIS?

The NDIS is a National Scheme funded by the Government to support people with disabilities to live ordinary lives. This is done by setting out some goals you would like to achieve during your planning meeting which is then supported by your NDIS funding.

 

What are NDIS goals?

Goals are anything you want to achieve. In relation to the NDIS all funding is linked to a goal you want to achieve. It could be you want to move into your own home and live independently, the barriers to that might be that you need assistance from someone to help you with some of your daily tasks, like cooking, cleaning or self-care. Some people feel like they won’t ever be able to move out of the family home because their family provides support which allows them to get through their day. Moving into their own home may seem unachievable. But with the support of the NDIS you can work towards this goal and prepare for living independently before you make the move and set up supports so that when you are ready to live independently you have all the support you need to do this.

 

Am I eligible for NDIS?

The NDIS has three main conditions which determine if you will be eligible:

-You must be under 65 at the time your application is submitted.

-You must be an Australian resident, and

-you must have a permanent condition which will significantly impact you day-to-day
