The NDIS is a national program that was introduced in 2013 to help Australians with disabilities access the same level of support and services as everyone else. The program provides funding for people with significant disabilities, who are living independently, to access a range of services. These services include assistance with tasks such as cooking, cleaning, laundry and shopping.
To be eligible for the NDIS, you must have a disability that is assessed as significant and permanent. A disability is assessed as significant if it results in significant limitations in one or more activities of daily living (ADLs) or has a substantial impact on your ability to interact with the community. The NDIS defines an ADL as anything that people usually do to maintain their health or wellbeing, such as bathing, dressing and grooming; using the toilet; getting in and out of bed; eating; communicating; etc.
