National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a national program that is providing a new way of delivering services and support to people under 65 who live with a permanent and significant disability.
The rollout of the NDIS in the Macedon Ranges started on 1 May 2017.
Accessing the NDIS
If you wish to participate in the NDIS, you must first be assessed against the access requirements. The questions in the NDIS access checklist will help you work this out.
