The NDIS stands for the National Disability Insurance Scheme and is overseen by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA). The NDIS will provide all Australians under the age of 65 who have a permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to enjoy a regular life.

The NDIS recognises that everyone’s needs and goals are different and provides people with individualised support and the flexibility to manage their supports to help them achieve their goals and enjoy an ordinary life. Sacred Heart Mission are registered to provide a range of services under the NDIS in Victoria and are excited about the opportunities the NDIS brings for people with disabilities, their families and carers in Victoria.
