Information Package for Families

National Disability Insurance Scheme

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides support for Australians with disabilities, their families and carers. As an insurance scheme, the NDIS takes a lifetime approach, investing early in people with disabilities to improve their outcomes later in life.

The NDIS supports people with disabilities to build skills and capability so they can participate in the community and gain employment. It assists them to access services and support, which may include funding related to the disability, or issues deemed reasonable or necessary for a person to live an everyday life and achieve personal goals.

The following documents are designed to help the families of students who are NDIS participants to make decisions on how they can engage with NDIS on school premises during school hours.
