What is NDIS? 

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an Australia-wide, government funded scheme that delivers supports and services to people with disability. Launched in 2013, the NDIS is the first scheme of its kind in Australia. When it is fully rolled out, it is estimated the Scheme will provide funding for supports and services to about 460,000 Australians with disability.  

Previously, block funding was provided by the government to agencies and community organisations. The NDIS has moved away from that system to individualised funding and support plans.  


Achieve Australia is an NDIS registered provider

Every NDIS participant has an individual plan that lists their goals. Participants use their funding to purchase supports and services that will help them achieve their goals. This is designed to allow better choice and control over the supports received.
