National Disability Insurance Scheme

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a national scheme that funds support and services to 460,000 Australians with permanent and significant disabilities.


GPs and health professionals help the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to determine whether a person meets the access requirements for the NDIS.

Carers Queensland is the Local Area Coordinator (LAC) for the Brisbane North and Moreton Bay regions.

The LAC's role is to work with individuals with a disability to identify their support needs, apply to the NDIS and link them to support and services.
