This page provides a detailed guide to the NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme). If you live with a disability and you need support in your everyday life, or alternatively if you are a carer then we have information about what you need to do, how you can do it and how we can help you with your NDIS plan.
The NDIS is managed by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) which cares about how you can get the help you need. There are certain requirements you need to fulfill to access the NDIS which include the availability of the scheme where you live, your age, your residency status, your disability and in some cases your early intervention requirements.
The NDIS pays for the reasonable and necessary supports that help people with a disability to live a healthier and more fulfilled life. However, the NDIS will not pay for things that everyone has to pay for or that the government already pays for.
Inspiro helps adult NDIS Participants with ‘Capacity Building Supports’ including Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Exercise Physiology, Podiatry, Psychology and Counselling, Speech Therapy and Maintenance Therapy.
We can give you support with your first NDIS plan and initiate discussions with your NDIS Planner or Local Area Coordinator. Inspiro can provide you with an Assessment Report and Quote of the supports you need to achieve your goals.
Inspiro's NDIS services are available at Healesville, Belgrave and Lilydale (and some services are available at your home).
