The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) supports people with disabilities to plan for and choose the supports they need to live a good life.   It is a national scheme which will provide targeted individualised support for people with disabilities, better coordination of supports and better access to services. Funding is allocated to you, the person with the disability, instead of to service providers in block funding. This means that you have choice and control to get the supports and services that you really need and which work best for you.

The NDIS is being rolled out in trial sites around the country to see how it can work most effectively. There are trial sites in different stages in most states and territories. Learnings from the trial sites are being used to help make the scheme the best it can be.

WA is trialling two versions of the NDIS: the NDIS and NDIS My Way.
