How to access NDIS
You need to be eligible to qualify for NDIS support. You can check your eligibility on the NDIS website. All those who are eligible can access the NDIS.
After you are approved, the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) staff will create your NDIS plan with you. The NDIA is the independent agency responsible for rolling out the NDIS.
Your NDIS plan will include your individual goals and the funding that has been allocated to help you achieve them. When your NDIS plan is completed, you can start finding services that will help you meet the agreed goals.
