What is the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) ensures that those who live with disability (defined as a permanent physical, psychosocial (mental health), sensory, cognitive or intellectual disability that impacts your daily life) receive funding for the support services they need.
What is the NDIA?
The NDIS is managed by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA). This independent organisation will assess your eligibility and determine what funding you will receive for supports.
In some cases, they will be responsible for helping you with your NDIS plan; in others, you will work with an approved early childhood partner or Local Area Coordinator.
What is a registered NDIS provider?
A registered NDIS provider like GNCS has been vetted by the National Disability Insurance Agency and must meet strict safety and quality standards.
If your plan is managed by the NDIA, you must use registered NDIS providers. If you self-manage or use a Plan Manager, you may use either (or both) registered and non-registered service providers. For disability care, it is highly recommended that you go with an accredited NDIS provider for quality service and peace of mind.
