The NDIS has now been rolled out on the Central Coast. This is available to individuals who are under 65 years when they first access the scheme and is open to Australian citizens, permanent residents or New Zealand residents with a Protected Special Category Visa.
Participants can receive individual support if they have a permanent and significant disability that affects their ability to take part in everyday activities.
Children may be able to receive individual support if there is strong evidence that early intervention would considerably improve functioning, or reduce a decline in functioning.
To find out whether you are eligible to access the NDIS, complete their online NDIS Access Checklist.
