Frequently asked questions

What is the NDIS?
The NDIS is federally funded support to Australians under 65 years of age who have a permanent or significant disability to access care and supports to live an ordinary life. The NDIS offers the person choice and control over how, when and where they use their supports to achieve their goals.
Is there support available to access the NDIS?
ATSICHS Brisbane have committed to supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in South East Queensland to understand and gain access to the NDIS. To start the process – book an appointment with your GP on (07) 3240 8900. They have all the forms and information you need or email us.
What do they mean by disability?
Disability refers to an impairment or condition which significantly affects a person’s ability to do ordinary, everyday things (e.g., getting around, shopping, looking after themselves etc.) without help. The impairment or condition must be permanent or likely to be permanent (be with you for life) and be either intellectual, physical, psychosocial, neurological, sensory or cognitive, or a combination of these. A disability is different from a medical condition – if you’re unsure about whether you have a disability, speak to your health professional.
Am I eligible for NDIS?
To be eligible for the NDIS you must:
– be under 65 years of age
– be a citizen or permanent resident of Australia
– have an impairment or condition (referred to as a disability by the NDIS) which is permanent, or likely to be permanent and which significantly restricts your ability to do everyday activities without help.
What type of things does the NDIS provide funding for?
The NDIS will provide ‘reasonable and necessary’ supports; these supports must relate to your disability and could include:
– help with personal care (e.g., support with showering, dressing etc.)
– help with preparing meals and maintaining your home
– Assistance with transport so you can participate in community, social, economic and daily life activities (e.g., going shopping, visiting friends, getting to work, seeing your doctor etc.)
– help to get or keep a job
– therapy support (e.g., occupational therapy, psychology, speech language therapy etc.)
– the purchase of specialist aids and equipment to maximise your independence (e.g., wheelchairs, hoists, specialist communication devices etc.)
– home and vehicle modifications (e.g., ramps, a bath hoist or a swivel seat etc.).
