The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is about giving people with a disability choice and control over their lives. Under the NDIS, people direct their individualised funding to the services and service providers of their choice. The NDIS aims for people with a disability to have their own circle of support, networks, friends and perhaps a job. It’s about enabling people to do the things they want and need to do, in a way that works for them.
The NDIS is being introduced in stages. The first stage of the NDIS was launched July 2013 in four locations throughout Australia. From July 2016, the NDIS will be progressively rolled out in NSW and by July 2018, all eligible residents will be covered. SGSCC disAbility sits in the South Eastern Sydney area which rolls out in July 2017.
Until the Scheme has been rolled out in your area, existing Commonwealth, state and territory government funded disability services will continue.
SGSCC disAbility aims to keep up to date with what the NDIS means to the people we support and how we can assist clients, parents and carers to embrace the changes and access all that it can provide.
SGSCC disAbility has always had a person centred approach and will continue to evolve services and practices to more fully serve clients under the NDIS. With 35 years of providing supports we offer reliable and person centred quality services.
