The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a national government scheme of individualised funding for all eligible Australian citizens providing reasonable and necessary supports for people with disability. It is intended to allow NDIS participants to self direct their lives and supports.
Self Managing NDIS Plans
There are three avenues for managing an NDIS plan and budget. Agency managed, plan managed and self managed. Self managed allows for maximum control and flexibility for an individual. The NDIS participant and/or nominee has direct control over the budget, support arrangements, support payments and can recruit and employ their own staff.
Independent Advisory Council for the NDIS
The Independent Advisory Council provides advice, submissions and reports to the National Disability Insurance Agency implementing the NDIS about the principles of the Scheme that influence policy and decision making.
