About the NDIS

The NDIS is the National Disability Insurance Scheme. The NDIS is here to help you achieve your goals and it is focused around enabling you to live your life. Vision Australia provides advice, services, daily living aids and technology to people who are blind or have low vision. This means you have access to, and can fully participate in, every part of life – when and as you choose. We can provide support to you throughout every stage of the NDIS process.

Important COVID-19 NDIS alert

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) are increasing payments to NDIS providers by an extra 10% for certain services, so you may see prices increase on your invoice or claims. This will not affect the amount of funding you can access for services, as the NDIA are increasing your plan values and service bookings to match. We will return prices to the base price when this 10% loading is ended. For more information on steps the NDIA are taking to support participants, please see their website.

Step 1: NDIS contact, eligibility and access

Find out about your eligibility and whether your area is currently included in the NDIS by calling our helpline on 1300 84 74 66  or send us an email.

Step 2: Getting plan ready

Vision Australia can help you work through your requirements so you can know what’s available and get what you need to achieve your goals.

Step 3: Your NDIS planning session

You can access whatever level of support you need throughout your NDIS planning process, with access to a Vision Australia staff member at any stage.

Step 4: Selecting your provider

Vision Australia is a registered NDIS provider and the leading organisation for people who are blind or have low vision. We will be there for every step of the NDIS process.
