The National Disability Insurance Scheme, or NDIS is run by the National Disability Insurance Agency, or NDIA. The NDIS is one component of the National Disability Strategy which brings community, government and industry together to address the challenges faced by people with disability, and ensures they are supported by mainstream services such as health, education and transport and the wider community.
The aim of the NDIS is simple: To provide Australians who are born with or acquire a permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to live and enjoy an ordinary life.
The vision of the NDIS is also simple: To build independence, and increase opportunities and social participation for people living with disability in Australia.
