The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
The NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) is a new way of providing support for people with permanent and significant disabilities, their family and carers. The NDIS provides an individualised, flexible and whole-person approach to support to help participants achieve their life goals.
NDIS also gives participants more choice around the supports they receive and greater access to a variety of services to meet individual needs and goals.
The NDIS was developed for people with a permanent and significant disability which impacts on their daily activities. There are other eligibility criteria to access NDIS such as the receiving the DSP, for more information on eligibly please use NDIS Access Check List.
You do need to be registered with NDIS and have employment support as an item in your NDIS plan to join Access Industries. If you are registered with the NDIS but do not have employment support on your plan, please Contact Access Industries or check the NDIS website.
For more information on working at Access Industries, see How do I become an employee of Access Industries?
Supports that Access Industries is registered to provide NDIS participants:
- Coordinating supports
- Work Experience
Access Industries can provide you with information and support to help you access the NDIS and put you in contact with your local National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) office.
Access Industries can meet with you and explain the services we provide under the NDIS. Please contact Access Industries if you would like more information.
Once you are deemed eligible for the NDIS the planning and assessment process will start. You will meet with a planner who will work with you to develop a plan of supports to help you achieve your goals.
You can have a parent, friend or advocate with you to make sure you get the supports you need and want in your plan. If one of your goals is employment, make sure you tell your NDIS planner so it can be included in your plan and you can access the right employment service for you.
From 1 July 2019 the NDIA introduced the Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP). This is a conditional loading to assist service providers like Access Industries to transition to the full National Disability Insurance Scheme. Access Industries is entitled to and does use TTP.
For more information about TTP, please visit the NDIS Price Guide.
