NDIS Registered Providers - How does it work?
When you are a new National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participant or researching your eligibility for the NDIS, there can be a mountain of questions you have. Especially in regards to NDIS registered providers and how and why they are there to help. As an NDIS provider ourselves, we are proud to be offering a service that brings the joy of good food to people in our Australian community.
As of January 2019, approximately 250,000 Australians were receiving support under the NDIS. The current plan is that the NDIS will eventually provide funding for supports and services to about 460,000 Australians aged under 65, who have permanent and significant disability.
What does it mean to be an NDIS Provider?
NDIS providers are individuals or organisations that deliver a support or service to a participant of the NDIS. As a registered provider, we must meet a number of requirements and then go through a formal registration process as well as comply with relevant quality and safeguards requirements.
We can then offer support to participants whose funding are NDIA-managed, Plan Managed or managed by the participant themselves. Through doing this, our services are helping people with a disability have the opportunity to live an ordinary life
