In this section you can read about the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). The NDIS is available to people aged under 65 years. It provides assistance to people living with a disability, including people living with motor neurone disease. The types of supports the NDIS may fund for participants include household assistance, aids and equipment, home modification, vehicle modification, coordination of support and other reasonable and necessary supports for daily living and participation.



Does MND NSW provide services for NDIS participants?

MND NSW has many years of experience with the NDIS and we are able to offer advice and insight for people with MND accessing the scheme. Generally, we have found the NDIS has offered greater choice and higher levels of support and services for people with MND than have been available in the past.

However we have also found that, because the system is relatively new, our participants have benefited from speaking with their MND Advisor or the MND Info Line before their NDIS plan is developed. Your MND Advisor can talk to you about the best way to prepare for your NDIS planning meeting.

When your plan is developed, some services you currently receive or would like to receive from MND NSW must be included for you to receive those services. These include:

How do I access the NDIS?
