NDIS for Families

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing disability support in Australia.

The NDIS will ensure that people with disability are given every opportunity to make their own decisions and exercise choice and control. We recognise that the role of families and carers is often essential in supporting people with disability to realise these goals and will include them in discussions about supports.

The NDIS will provide information, referral and linkage to ensure families and carers are able to access supports in the community to assist them in their role.

Guardians or nominees of people with disability play an important role in the NDIS to represent the interest of the person and they can contact us on behalf of the person.

Global Disability & Health Care Services is an NDIS Registered Service Provider - No. 4050003384

The NDIS web site page for people who have a disability, is the source of the key information you need to learn more about the scheme

Check the NDIS web site regularly for updated information.
