There are different things you can do to get ready for the NDIS before you meet with an NDIA support planner. Ask yourself: What does a good day or week look like for me?

The NDIS is a new way for people with disability to get the care and supports they need to live a better life. The NDIS gives people with disability choice and flexibility. This means you can choose who provides that support.

Your community might see people with disability as just needing some help from their family, friends, mob or community, rather than getting help from a service provider. You can still get help from family, friends, mob and community if you use the NDIS.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is implemented by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA). The NDIA has an internal review process which must be used prior to appealing an NDIA decision externally. If you are unhappy with the internal NDIA review, you can then contact the Commonwealth Ombudsman and seek an appeal through Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT).

If your family member or friend is assessed as being unable to make decisions for themselves, existing legal orders will take effect. This may be an Enduring Power of Attorney, or Enduring Guardianship.
