National Disability Insurance Scheme

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing support for Australians with disability, their families and carers. 
 
GPs and health professionals have an important role in helping the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to determine whether a person meets the access requirements for the NDIS. 

North Brisbane Partners in Recovery has supported Queenslanders with Disability Network to produce two toolkits for the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

Other resources

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) has developed a series of resources about how the NDIS connects with mainstream services such as mental health, aged care, housing and employment.
