In Tasmania, the NDIS was introduced by age group. This means that you will be able to enter the Scheme depending on your age. From 1 January 2019, the NDIS is available for all eligible people between the age of 7 and 65, and through an Early Childhood Early Intervention provider for children up to the age of 6.
The NDIS aim to:
– Raise community awareness and encourage greater inclusion
– Support service providers to build capacity and be part of the scheme.
– Improve access to mainstream services, community activities and other government initiatives.
– Provide resources for individualised services, supports and equipment.
NDIS registered services and supports can be found throughout each category on the Finding Your Way website.
In the NDIS section, you will Find the local agency and some unique to NDIS registered Services, such as Plan Managers and people that assist parents and carers and people with disability to manage and coordinate their supports. You will also Find information in the Resource section to assist you to navigate your way in this scheme.
NDIS resources for families with children are freely available on the Raising Children Network website.
