What is the NDIS?
The NDIS is a national scheme providing support to eligible people with intellectual, physical, sensory, cognitive and psychosocial disability. Early intervention supports can also be provided for eligible people with disability or children with developmental delay. The Vital Health & Wellbeing Centre specializes in services for people 18 years and over.
The NDIS is designed to help people get the support they need so their skills and independence improve over time.
Alternatively, you can call the NDIS on 1800 800 110 and ask to make an Access Request. Following your application, you will be contacted by a Local Area Coordinator (LAC) who will organize a time with you to discuss your application and support needs.
What do I do once I receive a support plan and funding?
Once you go through the above process and are successful in your application for funding, you will receive a support plan, have access to an individualized NDIS portal so that you can see your funding, and are then able to exercise choice and control. This means that you choose who provides you with services and supports and engage with your chosen provider by entering into a service agreement. At this point, if you choose the Vital Health & Wellbeing Centre, we can help you. Reach out to us by calling 1300 648 099. We will organize a time to meet with you to discuss your individual needs and tailor a program to meet those needs. This initial consultation is FREE with no obligation to sign up with us.
