  • improved daily living skills
  • increased social and community participation

Our services are available to you if you live in the areas of Whittlesea, City of Banyule, City of Darebin, City of Yarra, or Nillumbik Shire.

If you live outside these areas, if you are eligible for disability services, or if you meet the criteria of the Disability Act 2006 but do not yet have a plan with NDIS, you may discuss possible options with our Client and Services Connection worker (see number below).

To be eligible for the NDIS you must:

  • Have a permanent and significant disability or a developmental delay
  • Be an Australian citizen, or hold a permanent visa or a Protected Special Category visa
  • Be under 65 years of age
  • Need support from a person or equipment to do everyday activities

If you want to be part of the NDIS, you must first meet the access requirements of the NDIS.

You can contact the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) on 1800 800 110 if you have any questions about access to the NDIS.

When you have gained access to the NDIS, the NDIA or one of their partner organisations will work with you to develop your first plan.

If you don’t meet the requirements, find out what you can do if you’re not eligible for the NDIS.

Each year, the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) reviews the prices of NDIS supports. As stated in our Service Agreement, DPV Health adjusts prices in line with these pricing reviews.

Please note that the NDIA also increases the funds available in each participant’s NDIS plan if the prices of their supports have changed. This ensures that the same number of hours are available for participants to use.

For current information on NDIS support prices, please see the NDIS Price guides and pricing

If you have any questions, please contact our NDIS Engagement Officers at NDIS@DPVHealth.org.au .

There are some kinds of supports that will not be funded or provided by the NDIS

The NDIS cannot fund a support that is:

  • the responsibility of another government system or community service
  • not related to a person’s disability
  • relates to day-to-day living costs that are not related to a participant’s support needs, or
  • is likely to cause harm to the participant or pose a risk to others.
