The National Disability Insurance Scheme
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is Australia’s new disability care scheme. It gives people living with disability, their families and carers the support they need to live a full life.
We look after the financial and legal affairs of over 9,000 Victorians living with disability. Many of our clients already use the NDIS. The NDIS gives our clients greater choice about the services and support they can receive, and it gives them greater control over the quality of their lives.
Our role in the NDIS for our clients
The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) can appoint us as an administrator if a person is not able to make their own decisions. As an administrator, we don’t have the authority to make the personal and lifestyle decisions that a client needs for NDIS planning. However, we can help make sure our clients have access to the full range of NDIS benefits.
