Starting your NDIS journey

Choices & Rights is a registered NDIS provider that delivers support and services to participants of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). The NDIS came into existence in 2013 upon the passing of the National Disability Insurance Scheme Act 2013.

NDIS participants have the right to be safe and to receive quality services from the providers and workers they choose to support them under the NDIS. The NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission is an independent agency established to improve the quality and safety of NDIS supports and services.

Our team has a ready an extensive network of support staff to provide any assistance you require under your NDIS Plan.

Your NDIS plan is all about you and your individual goals. It outlines your goals and the supports you will receive from the NDIS; the community and other government supports to help you achieve those goals.

If you need any help understanding or using your plan you will find the NDIS contact details on the front page of your plan.

There are two sections in the plan that are all about achieving your goals, making it a clearer and more user-friendly format.

“How will I achieve this goal” – this will help you with attaining your goals.

And “How will I be supported?” – this will help you understand who will support you with this goal.

The goals in your plan will also be matched up with the different funded supports: Core, Capacity-building, and Capital. Some people might have one funded support and others may have all three. For your personalised funded supports there is a total budget making it easier to monitor and use it flexibly where you can.

What is the NDIS

“The NDIS can provide all people with disability with information and connections to services in their communities such as doctors, sporting clubs, support groups, libraries and schools, as well as information about what support is provided by each state and territory government.” NDIS 

  • National: The NDIS is being introduced progressively across all states and territories.
  • Disability: The NDIS provides support to eligible people with intellectual, physical, sensory, cognitive, and psychosocial disability. Early intervention supports can also be provided for eligible people with disability or children with developmental delay.
  • Insurance:The NDIS gives all Australians peace of mind if they, their child or loved one is born with or acquires a permanent and significant disability, they will get the support they need.
  • Scheme: The NDIS is not a welfare system. The NDIS is designed to help people get the support they need so their skills and independence improve over time.
