Support 24 hours
We are here to support you every day and night, including weekends and public holidays. Services can often be arranged within 24 hours and our flexibility means we can support you in an emergency or once-off basis. If you’d like a service ‘holiday’, we’re also flexible enough to put your services on hold until you are ready to continue. If you travel within Australia, your services can follow you at no extra cost. We will arrange for our local teams to seamlessly continue services.
What is the National Disability Insurance Scheme?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of funding services and supports for people with disability. Under the scheme, eligible participants with disability receive their own individual funding and NDIS plan to support them to achieve their specific goals and live their life the way they want.
Previously, service providers received government funding to deliver services and supports, with little choice or flexibility given to people with disability.
With their own individual funding, NDIS participants can now choose the services and supports they want and the providers to deliver them.
The NDIS is currently rolling out across Australia in stages. Some areas have already begun to switch over to the new scheme. Other areas will transition over the coming years. The scheme is expected to be fully rolled out across Australia by 2019. In Western Australia, a separate state-run model of the NDIS will run, with some consistencies with the national scheme such as choice and control maintained.
