To be eligible for the NDIS core support, there are several factors which will be used to determine whether you can participate in the scheme:
  • Do you live in Australia and are an Australian citizen, a permanent resident or a Special Category Visa?
  • Are you aged between 7 – 64 when you first access the scheme?
  • Do you usually need support from someone because of a permanent or significant disability?
  • Do you use special equipment because of a permanent or significant disability?
  • Do you need supports at present to reduce your needs in the future?
You can make use of the NDIS Access Checklist to find out if you are indeed eligible to receive assistance. If you think you are eligible, information can be found on the NDIS site.
