What exactly is the NDIS in Queensland? Thanks to the National Disability Insurance Scheme Act of 2013, it will provide around 460,000 Australians under the age of 65 who have a significant or permanent disability with funding for a disability plan to give them support and disability services in Queensland they require.
Additionally, the NDIS can supply folks living with disabilities with information and connections to disability service providers from doctors, support groups, libraries, sporting clubs, and schools.
The NDIS funding supports a range of services which can include education, employment, social activities, and help with things such as independence, living arrangements, health and wellbeing.
For the NDIS to fund support or services there are some requirements it should fall under:
- It must be related to the participant’s disability
- It cannot cover everyday living costs that are not directly related to your disability support needs, such as groceries
- The service should be considered likely to be effective for the participant and take into account the support given to you by other sources such as government services, carers, family, community and networks.
