The first step is understanding if you are eligible to receive NDIS funding:

  • Are you permanently disabled or require early intervention to reduce the support you will need in the future?
  • Are you under 65 years old?
  • Are you living in Australia?
  • Are you an Australian citizen or permanent resident?

If you answered yes to all of the above, you may be eligible for NDIS funding. To apply, contact the NDIS directly on 1800 800 110. Alternatively, you can complete an Access Request Form on the NDIS website: www.ndis.gov.au

I love NDIS

NDIS Psychology

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a way of supporting people with permanent and significant disability. The NDIS is designed to give individuals greater choice and control over when, where and how their funded supports are provided. The specific support and funding available is based on each individual’s specific needs. You can find out more about what therapeutic supports are funded by referring to the NDIS website.

Ability Action Australia provides NDIS psychology services across Australia.
