The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) recognises the value and importance our partners, practitioners and community support workers in ensuring people have the best possible opportunity to apply for the NDIS.

The NDIS mental health and engagement teams will facilitate the session – come along to learn:

  • how the NDIS legislation works and is applied – specifically terminology such as ‘likely to be permanent’ and ‘substantially reduced functional capacity’.
  •  how to provide evidence to support an NDIS access request
  • how access decisions are made; and
