NDIS

What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the Federal Government funding scheme that supports people with a disability, their families and carers. People with a disability will receive funding for “reasonable and necessary” supports based on their individual needs and aspirations.

Through Coordination of Support (and our support coordinator) Ungooroo can assist the NDIS participant to build the skills needed to understand, implement and use their plan. A support coordinator will work with the NDIS participant to ensure a mix of supports are used to increase capacity to maintain relationships, manage service delivery tasks, live more independently and be included in the community.

Allied health supports including occupational therapy, speech therapy and physiotherapy are available if the service relates to a participant’s disability, is likely to be effective (works for the participant) and meets the general criteria of the NDIS. These services can be provided by Ungooroo if the participant chooses.
