NDIS: Ordinary Life

The idea of people with disability being supported to live an ordinary life is central to the work of the NDIS.

Through reasonable and necessary supports, the NDIS is helping people live a life with the simple joys and opportunities many Australians take for granted.

This might mean getting involved in the community, enrolling in education, spending more time with family, entering the workforce for the first time or returning to work, receiving the right equipment or choosing the providers that best meet their needs.
