What is the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides people with a disability with reasonable and necessary support to live an ordinary life.
People with a disability share the ordinary aspirations of their peers without disability but need reasonable and necessary NDIS support to achieve them.
How to Manage Your NDIS Funding
There are three ways you can manage your NDIS funding:
- Agency Managed
- Plan Managed
We know that self-managing can offer people the most flexibility in using NDIS funding. With flexibility, greater choice is experienced. Having the choice over who, when, what and how a person is supported gives a person a better chance to live a good life.
Browse the resources below. We particularly hope you enjoy the stories showing the interesting ways that people have used their funding to live a good life.
