The National Disability Insurance Scheme (also called the NDIS) is the new way of providing support to Australians with disability, and their families and carers.
The NDIS helps people with disability to:
access mainstream services and supports – like the health system and education systems
access community services and supports – like sports clubs, community groups and charities
maintain informal supports – like the help people get from their family and friends. This is support people don’t pay for and is generally part of most people’s lives
get reasonable and necessary funded supports – related to their disability and needed for them to live an ordinary life
At Gippsland Dietetics, we can help your client to improve quality of life by educating them about healthy eating and some ideas on achieving a better diet to meet their NDIS goals.
