AMIND – NDIS Registered Provider
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will support a better life for
hundreds of thousands of Australians with a significant and permanent disability and
their families and carers. The NDIS will mean peace of mind for every Australian – for
anyone who has, or might acquire, a disability.
If you are a person with disability and you meet the access requirements you can become
a participant in the scheme. If you do not meet the access requirements, and you live
in a launch site, the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) may be able to provide
you with information about other supports that could be of benefit to you.
