Who can access the NDIS

What can I do to prepare?

You can prepare by:

  • Thinking about your life now and into the future.
  • Identifying your strengths, interests, networks, opportunities and challenges.
  • Considering your current supports including your informal, mainstream and disability supports.
  • Collecting your disability information, this may include existing reports and other information to support a NDIS access request.
  • Creating words or pictures about your daily life and goals.


Am I Eligible for the NDIS

You can visit the Am I eligible page to complete an NDIS checklist and see if you might be eligible.

If you think you might be eligible and want to apply:

  • make a verbal application by calling NDIA on 1800 800 110
