NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme

What is it?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme, or NDIS, is the biggest change to social services in Australia since the introduction of Medicare in the 1970s. Managed by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), the NDIS provides individualised funding to Australians living with disabilities, giving them choice and control over their funding and how they choose to utilise it.

 

Participants can choose to use their funding to access supports and services to help them in their daily life and to reach their goals. This could include:

  • Support to connect you with services and assist you to manage your funding and budget.
  • Therapy services, equipment prescriptions and modifications to your home or car.
  • Group programs, day options programs and functional skills programs.
  • Support for parents, carers and guardians to care for the Participant.
  • Assistance to live independently, access the community, and provide support to study or work.

Why Choose PAHS?

At PAHS, we utilise a person centred approach in all aspects of our services, ensuring the Participant and their family/carers have choice and control over what services they receive and how. As part of our process, we meet with each new Participant and/or their parent/guardian, at no cost, to explain the details of your plan, ensure you are accessing any required services and supports, and to assist you to optimise your plan.

Our staff have extensive experience working within the NDIS framework, which enables us to assist you to optimise your plan, support you during plan reviews and ensure you have all the necessary information and reports, provided in a clear and concise format, for your review meeting.
