What is the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (commonly referred to as the NDIS) is Australia’s national approach to provide funding support to people with a disability, including people with specific levels of vision impairment. It is designed to cover the costs of services and equipment to assist you to achieve your goals.
Whether you want to increase your independence, get more involved in your community, improve daily living skills or enhance your general health and wellbeing, the NDIS can connect you with the right supports and services.
Before you participate in the NDIS, you’re encouraged to think about your life at the moment, and the life you’d like to lead. This will help inform your NDIS plan. With support from our team at Guide Dogs, you can choose the right services for your unique circumstances to help you achieve your goals.
