4 Things You Need To Know About The NDIS

The introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) changed the disability sector forever. For the first time, Australians living with a disability have choice and control over the support they receive. 

At Auto Extras, we welcome the NDIS here in Queensland. It’s a totally fresh approach to disability support, and having worked extensively with the old VOSS scheme, we are excited to be a registered and approved NDIS service provider.

To help you make the most of the NDIS’ support, here are ‘4 Key Things You Need To Know About The NDIS.’  

You Don’t Need To Be A NDIS Participant To Receive Support From The NDIS. 

If you are not a participant of the NDIS, you may still be eligible for NDIS support. The NDIS will connect people with a disability, their families and carers, (including people who are not NDIS participants) to disability and mainstream supports in their community.


NDIS Approved Providers

It is important to select a NDIS certified service provider when choosing a provider to deliver the support included in your NDIS plan. At Auto Extras, we are a NDIS approved service provider for South East Queensland, and we are also authorised by Queensland Transport to certify all vehicle modifications. Choosing the right provider will help to streamline the application process.

Your Life, Your Plan

As an eligible NDIS participant, you will have input into your plan. Participants can choose how they want to manage the funded supports in their plan, and what services are right for them. Also, unless your plan indicates otherwise, you can choose the provider you want to deliver the support indicated in your plan.


NDIS Gives Greater Flexibility To Cater To Your Needs

NDIS certified providers have an unprecedented amount of flexibility in service, design, and delivery in the NDIS. As a provider, we can now design programs that we believe will best meet our customers needs, instead of just providing services that fit into a narrow government funding grant application. The NDIS allows us as providers to come up with creative solutions to help you meet your goals.
