The National Disability Insurance Scheme is called the NDIS. The NDIS is a new way to help people under 65 with disability get care and supports.
The NDIS also helps families and carers with information about services to support people with disability. When people get help from the NDIS they can enjoy an ordinary life now and as their life changes. Equality. Equity. Access!
I get support from NDIS. I get funding from NDIS to purchase my supports. My main support is Interpreting services. I request for an Auslan (Australian Sign Language) interpreter when I have meetings with hearing people in professional settings such as work meetings and conferences.
I am self managed. More information can be found at these websites
