What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an insurance-based scheme that invests in participants to improve long-term outcomes.  Funding for supports is determined by the consideration of a person’s individual needs, goals, and aspirations. Participants then choose their supports from the marketplace of providers, and are empowered to pursue their goals and aspirations.

VASS is registered for the NDIS under the group disability program.

NDIS Eligibility at VASS:

  • Under 65 years of age and above 6 years of age
  • Australian Residency
