Melbourne Disability Expo
The Melbourne Disability and NDIS Expo will take place at the Melbourne Convention Centre from Friday 21st April to Saturday 22nd - yes, tomorrow!
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a government-funded program in Australia that provides support and services to individuals with disabilities. The NDIS was introduced to improve the lives of people with disabilities by giving them more choice and control over the support services they receive. It aims to provide people with disabilities access to necessary services and support that enable them to participate in their communities and lead more independent lives.
The NDIS is funded by the Australian government and operates at both federal and state/territory levels. It has significantly changed the landscape of disability support in Australia by shifting from a welfare-based model to a more person-centered and individualized approach. The NDIS aims to provide people with disabilities the opportunity to live fulfilling lives, achieve their goals, and participate fully in society.
If you or someone you know is interested in accessing the NDIS, it's recommended to visit the official NDIS website or contact the NDIS directly to learn more about eligibility criteria, the application process, and available supports.
