The NDIS has been designed to give eligible people with a disability a greater choice and control over the support they receive. Funding is provided based on their personal needs, goals and aspirations. As a registered provider under the scheme ACCnet21 staff can help make your journey as simple as possible.
The Federal Government agreed that people with a disability deserved a fairer system, and more control over the services they receive. So in July 2013, the NDIS was introduced in four locations, followed by another three in mid-2014. It’s planned that by 2020, the NDIS rollout will be complete across Australia. If the scheme hasn’t been launched in your area yet your current government-funded disability services will continue as usual.
Through the NDIS assessment and planning process, you can determine what reasonable and necessary supports you need to live your life and achieve your personal goals. You’ll then receive funding to pay for these disability services.
With the NDIS, you not only get to choose what type of supports you receive, you also decide when, where and how you receive them – and which disability service providers you’ll work with. You even have control over how your funds are managed.
As an approved NDIS service provider, ACCnet 21 is here to help make these positive changes happen for you.
There are several factors that decide whether you’re eligible to receive funding under the NDIS, including your location, age, and whether you meet the requirements for disability or early intervention support.
If you are eligible, you will be sent forms to complete and return to the NDIA, who will then process your registration.
If you are already an ACCnet21 client, a local staff member will contact you before your area transitions to the NDIS to assist you with the process.
Our NDIS team can answer your questions about the NDIS and help you or the person you support get the most out of the scheme. Call us on 1300 454 850 or email ACCnet21.
