Northern Support Services



NSS people tell their own stories through video and animation - see them here >

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and the NDIS draft rules have been released.  Together, the legislation and rules will enable choice and control pathways for individuals with a disability, their families and carers.  This includes flexibility to make decisions about the disability services and supports the individual's use.

The Australian Government has established the NDIS Advisory Group to help steer the development of the scheme and ensure people with disability are involved in the design and are now seeking your feedback.  The draft rules have been released for public consultation and cover:

- becoming a participant

- protection and disclosure information

- supports for participants

- children

- nominees

- registered providers; and

- plan management
