The National Disability Insurance Scheme – or NDIS – provides services and support to Australians with permanent, significant disability which substantially impacts on their ability to complete everyday activities. Uniting is proud to deliver person-centred NDIS services to people across Perth and the Great Southern in WA

How the NDIS works
The Australian Government funds the scheme, which is administered by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA). The NDIA are responsible for assessing eligibility for the scheme. If you’re eligible, they’ll also determine the amount of funding you’ll get, based on what they deem to be reasonable and necessary in order for you to achieve your goals.
Those goals are mapped out in an NDIS plan, which determines the types of services you need to support you to achieve those goals. Your NDIS plan will be reviewed on an annual basis. To learn more about how the planning process works, click here.
