National Disability Insurance Scheme

What is NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) was created for people with permanent and significant disabilities. With it, qualified individuals can access better freedom over the support and funding they receive.  This is made possible with collaboration with organisations, service providers, mainstream supports and communities. 

By enabling expanded access to diverse opportunities, the NDIS cultivates genuine bonds with collaborators. The results are centralised services specifically tailored to the distinct requirements of a qualified individual.

The NDIS is available all over Australia. Since 2013, it has been progressively rolled out across different regions and states.  As of March 31 2023, about 600,000 Australians have access to it.

Relieve the Burden of Overwhelming NDIS Planning

Will I Qualify for an NDIS Plan?

We can help you understand the application process and the NDIS guidelines for suitability. We can assist with the application if you wish. It doesn’t matter if you complete the application yourself or with help, once completed and submitted, then the NDIS will assess your application. The assessment phase might involve discussions with your family, healthcare providers, doctors, and other people who currently support you in the community and at home.

The assessment phase will vary from case to case, depending on personal circumstances. Your health professional is essential to the process because they may be required to complete documents as requested by the NDIS. These could include Access Request Forms, health records and assessments that outline the extent and impact of your disability.

Our Story and Commitment

Our passion and commitment is to help people with disabilities thrive and live their lives to the fullest. As your support coordinator, we will be your guiding hands, simplifying the administrative and tedious parts of the NDIS process. 

Plan Wise Living started by Giuliana when she began navigating the NDIS system back in 2013 for her daughter. Giuliana’s daughter, Gabriella has multiple disabilities and health concerns. Because of this, Giuliana relies on the collaboration and understanding of all her daughters’ providers to be able to achieve the best outcomes for Gabriella. But this collaboration is not natural for many providers, especially when this involves many systems which include health, education, mainstream support and disability specific support. So Giuliana learnt very early on how to be the key figure to orchestrate the communication and networking between all providers of Gabriella’s care. She has now taken this personal experience and knowledge and uses this to support many people with disabilities and has further shared it with her team at Plan Wise Living.
