What is the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is how the Australian Government is delivering support for eligible people with permanent and significant disability. Based on your circumstances, you may be eligible. If you're unsure, contact a centre near you or phone 1300 88 70 58 anywhere in Australia.
Make the most of your NDIS package
As a nationally registered NDIS provider, Vision Australia will support you to access the scheme and plan for your future. The best time to talk to Vision Australia is before you meet with your NDIS planner. Expert staff will help you prepare for your NDIS planning meeting by discussing your goals and the range of supports available. Developing a pre-plan will give you confidence that it provides all the support you need to achieve your goals.
Remember - you can nominate Vision Australia as your service provider for all of your vision related needs when you contact the NDIS.
Come along to an event near you and hear NDIS experts explain the important changes and how they may affect you. Visit the Events page for more events.
