Why We are Different

Why do we need the NDIS?

People with disability have the same right as other Australians to determine their best interests and to have choice and control over their lives. The NDIS recognises that everyone’s needs and goals are different. The NDIS provides people with individualised support and the flexibility to manage their supports to help them achieve their goals and enjoy an ordinary life.

The NDIS replaces a disability system that was unfair and inefficient with a new, national system that is world-leading, equitable and sustainable. This provides certainty and consistency for people with disability, their families and carers.

Australians will now have peace of mind that if their child or loved one is born with or acquires a significant disability that is likely to be with them for life they will get the support they need, when they need it.

Can I still receive support if I do not meet the access requirements for the NDIS?

A person does not have to be an NDIS participant to receive support from the NDIS. The NDIS will connect people with disability, their families and carers, including people who are not NDIS participants, to disability and mainstream supports in their community.

What should I do if I am over 65?

If you’re 65 years or over and currently receive NSW Government disability supports, you will not be disadvantaged. You will continue to receive supports that achieve similar outcomes to those you are currently receiving.
You can find out more by visiting the Department of Health website.

Children under six years of age

Children under six who have a disability may be eligible to receive support from the NDIS through the Early Childhood Early Intervention Approach, (ECEI).
The ECEI Approach is how the NDIS is working with Early Childhood Providers to deliver early childhood intervention for children aged up to the age of six.
For more information on the Early Childhood Early Intervention Approach, please visit https://ndis.gov.au/eceic or contact the NDIA on 1800 800 110
