NDIS Overview

It’s an innovative and effective way that brings funded support for disabled people and even benefits their families. The National Disability Insurance Scheme adopts a lifelong perspective offering you choice and control in your supports. You can decide the supports that you need and who can provide them.

Beyond support and care it assists people with disability to actively build skills and capability to participate in community activities and employment opportunities.

Arafura Care & Support Services is a qualified NDIS provider. We invite you to discuss your NDIS plan with our representative at your convenience.

Feel free to reach out to us.

The eligibility criterion for receiving NDIS funding

To be eligible for NDIS support you need to:

  • Have a permanent disability, and it should affect your ability to conduct everyday activities. 
  • Be under 65 years of age while joining the scheme.
  • Be an Australian citizen or a permanent visa holder or having a Protected Special Category Visa. 

The focus is on early intervention such that upon receiving early support, the impact of disability gets reduced to a certain extent. 

For this, it may be required that you need a certifying document from a health professional stating your disability impact. Your disability may affect your mobility, communication, community interaction, self-care, self-management and more. 

Early intervention refers to:

  • A child up to 6 years of age, undergoing developmental delay may lead to extra help for the child compared to other children. This help and support may include communication, self-care, motor skills and learning. 
  • A permanent impairment or condition. 

Services and support available under the NDIS fund

People who fulfil the NDIS eligibility requirements are referred to as participants. These individuals receive funds for the support and an individualized plan for accessing it. 

  • Access to several supports and services you get from your doctor or school.
  • Access to the activities and services from the local community. 
  • Access to informal care and help from family and friends. 

All other funded supports that are considered reasonable and necessary.
