Understanding NDIS

We can guide you through the NDIS

About NDIS

DPV Health is a registered and experienced NDIS provider offering a range of services throughout northern suburbs in Melbourne.

We offer support that’s flexible to fit your needs, focused on your unique goals and all about achieving positive outcomes for you.

Can I get support?

The NDIS supports people living with disability, mental illness or developmental delay. Funding can provide you with the reasonable and necessary support you need in day-to-day life and to achieve your goals.

Eligibility depends on your age, citizenship status and the impact of your disability.

To access funding you must:

  • Be an Australian citizen, permanent resident or hold a Protected Special Category Visa
  • Be aged under 65
  • Have a permanent or ongoing condition that impacts your ability to complete everyday activities. Or, if you have a condition that could get better, having support now will mean you can do more things for yourself in the future.

For more information use the NDIS Access Checklist. The scheme is now available across all of Victoria.

How it works

  • The NDIS puts you in charge of your funding and gives you choice and control over the services you purchase.
  • If you’re eligible, you’ll work with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) or an organisation they partner with called a Local Area Coordinator (LAC) to develop your plan.
  • Your NDIS plan will look at all areas of your life
  • You’ll discuss where you live, what you like to do, your daily needs, and your short and long term goals.
  • Through your plan, you’ll receive funding for supports to help you live a good life and achieve your goals. Your plan will be reviewed annually, or sooner if your needs change.

The types of supports that the NDIS may fund for participants include:

  • Daily personal activities
  • Transport to enable participation in community, social, economic and daily life activities
  • Workplace help to allow a participant to successfully find or keep employment in the open or supported labour market
  • Therapeutic supports including behaviour support
  • Help with household tasks to allow the participant to maintain their home environment
  • Help to a participant by skilled personnel in aids or equipment assessment, set up and training
  • Home modification design and construction
  • Mobility equipment, and
  • Vehicle modifications.

There are some kinds of supports that will not be funded or provided by the NDIS
The NDIS Act and the rules made under the NDIS Act also tell us which supports will not be funded 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.

Find more information on types of funded supports here: https://www.ndis.gov.au/

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has a national approach to early childhood early intervention (ECEI) that gives children aged 0-6 years quick access to support that’s tailored to their needs.

This support might be information, emotional support or referral to other services like community health services, playgroups or peer support groups. Your child might also get sessions with early childhood early intervention providers in the short term or medium term.

This level of intervention might be all your child needs to reach his developmental goals.

If your child has longer-term support needs, your child might get an individualised NDIS support plan. This helps your child get access to appropriate supports over the long term.

The NDIS also supports children aged seven years and over, but the steps to support are different for children in this age group.
