What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is available to Australians under the age of 65 who have a permanent disability. It is a way of providing funding and support to eligible people, based on their individual needs and goals.
 

The ILC project

NSW Health, under NDIS Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) grants program has developed this guide tailored to people with a newly acquired brain injury or spinal cord injury. The vision is to build capacity for these people and their families, to navigate the NDIS and understand what other supports are available. 

Adults with a newly acquired disability

If you have a newly acquired spinal cord injury or brain injury, use this guide to find out how to access the NDIS, how to develop a plan that's right for you and learn about other support available. If you have a different acquired injury, please visit the NDIS website
