National Disability Insurance Scheme

Home / NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funding support to those Australians who have a significant and permanent disability. It also assists those having a disability with information and links to services such as support groups, physicians, community clubs, etc.

Under the NDIS, MSMW is committed to providing diverse disability services, and we remain hopeful about the support provided by NDIS.

A national scheme which is being progressively rolled out, the NDIS promotes early intervention and assures Australians with a disability of adequate support during their difficult times. With its design, it helps people get the support they need to improve their skills and independence over time.
