The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will deliver a life-long approach to support people with disability through individualised planning processes to identify the ‘reasonable and necessary’ supports, services and equipment to enable a person to achieve goals in many aspects of life, including independence, involvement in the community, education, employment and health and wellbeing.

Each participant in the NDIS will have an individualised plan which sets out their goals and aspirations, the disability supports (services and products) that will be funded by the NDIS, and other supports the person requires. Providers are engaged by participants to deliver supports in accordance with the participant’s plan.

Senses Australia is a registered National Disability Insurance Scheme service provider and can provide a comprehensive range of disability services to individuals with disability, their families and carers.

The NDIS is being rolled out in stages because it’s a big change to the current system.

In Western Australia, people living in the Local Government Areas of Swan, Kalamunda and Mundaring can access the Perth Hills area of the NDIS and from Sunday, 1 January 2017 this area will be expanded to include Bayswater, Bassendean, Chittering, Toodyay, York and Northam.
