What is Disability Support?

Life can be challenging for all of us at times. It’s fair to say we all need a helping hand at some stage. For those living with disability, it’s vital there are plenty of supports continually available to enhance life, enable opportunities, and achieve inclusion. Disability support comes in various shapes and sizes.

Disability community programs, groups and networks all provide much needed support and services. They are a terrific avenue to share experiences. They are also an opportunity to work together and raise awareness on issues that impact the lives of those with disabilities.

The Australian government has a number of schemes and programs in place to help those with disability reach their full potential.  Some schemes provide training to support employment. Others include funding to ensure daily care and well-being needs are met. The largest, well-known government initiative to help people access disability care is the NDIS.

What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides disability support to eligible people. Support is defined as assistance, services, or products to help a person in their daily life. Supports need to be considered as reasonable or necessary. Services can include those relating to education, social participation, independence, living arrangements, and health and wellbeing.

How Can I Access Disability Services?

Once your application with the NDIS has been approved, you will receive a plan. Your plan will outline what funding has been allocated to you for each support category. It identifies the types of disability services you will be able to access through your NDIS funding. The next step is to find a reputable disability service provider.
