If you are a person with disability and you meet the access requirements you can become a participant in the scheme. As a participant, you will be able to access the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) community linkages and individualised planning processes to identify the reasonable and necessary supports you need to enable you to achieve your goals. To get an idea about whether you meet the access requirements, you can use My Access Checker.

If you do not meet the access requirements, and you live in a launch site, the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) may be able to provide you with information about other supports that could be of benefit to you and assist in referral to these.

The NDIA will also work in close partnership with local communities to improve inclusion and people with disability.  The Agency will also look at fostering innovation, research and best practice to better support people with disability. In building awareness of disability across the general community we can address the things that can make a difference to everyday life for people with a disability, their families and carers.
