If you are an Australian, disabled and under 65 years of age, you may well qualify for assistance under the NDIS. You qualify for assistance if you have permanent residency in Australia, or if you hold a Protected Special Category Visa. If you have a permanent disability which prevents you from doing everyday things for yourself, you can seek help through the NDIS.

The NDIS is an insurance scheme. It replaces the old disability system which was, in the final analysis, inequitable and ineffective. This new system is disparate and Australia is now on the forefront of providing a compassionate and sensible disability systems. It is fair and sustainable and offers a lifetime of support to the disabled and as it identifies and helps people at an early stage. Disabled people who subscribe to the scheme will have better prospects and opportunities.

Who can access the NDIS?

Children with developmental problems, who are under 6 years old, can access the scheme, as can older people who have difficulty communicating with others. Making friends can be sometimes difficult for people with mental or physical disabilities and in such cases, support can be provided. If you have problems coping with your emotions and feelings, you can get help through the scheme.

Do you have difficulties learning new things, understanding and remembering them? Don’t worry, assistance can be provided. Basically, if you have some problems with coping with everyday things, from taking a bath or shower, or handling money, help is at hand.

Find Interpreters through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

If you or a close relative have a permanent disability and you subscribe to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), you can receive help to gain access to:-

  • mainstream services and the necessary and reasonable supports that are needed to lead a relatively normal life;
  • community services and supports, such as libraries, sports clubs, community groups and charities, so that you or your relative can fully participate in your community.
  • ‘reasonable and necessary supports,’ paid for through the NDIS. Such supports might, for example, include an interpretation or translation service.

How does the scheme work?

The NDIS has a register of approved providers of a wide variety of services. Someone who subscribes to the NDIS can choose a provider and enter into a written agreement, called a Service Agreement, with that person or organisation. The agreement will set out how and what agreed supports will be delivered.

All providers’ qualifications are checked so that the client is assured of the best service possible. The client is free to choose an appropriate provider who can meet their needs. You can rest assured that your provider will follow state or territory rules and regulations when you use their services.
