The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will support a better life for hundreds of thousands of Australians with a significant and permanent disability or a severe and enduring mental health issue, as well as their families and carers. The NDIS will mean peace of mind for every Australian for anyone who has or might acquire a disability.
The introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme is one of the biggest social changes of our times. Accessing the scheme might seem complicated and overwhelming at first, but there are numerous ways to get prepared.
We can help you understand how the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) works and whether you are eligible to participate.
We can deliver the services you want to receive, in line with the funding provided through your NDIS plan.
Your Life Your Choice services can be purchased through NDIS funding
NDIS services fall into three categories:
(Core) Support that enables you to complete daily living activities, work toward your goals and meet your objectives.
(Capital) An investment such as assistive technology, equipment and home or vehicle modifications, and funding for capital costs such as specialist Disability Accommodation.
(Capacity Building) A support that enables you to build you independence and skills.
Community inclusion underpins all our efforts as an organisation. We have a commitment to ensuring that all people we serve have opportunities to fully participate in the community, and we actively work to create communities that seek out and welcome the participation of everyone.
Employee Me has developed a range of policies to communicate our position on a range of significant issues. We regularly review these policies and undertake research and consultation activities to ensure they continue to reflect best practice and meet the current legislative requirements of each state and territory in which we operate.
