What is the National Disability Insurance Scheme?

The national disability insurance scheme or NDIS is a funding program intended to provide you with financial support. This is so you can access the reasonable and necessary services you want.

These are the Hunter Region of NSW (including Lake Macquarie, Newcastle & Maitland) and Canberra in the ACT.

In these areas our NDIS services, support and advice come under the name “Sunflower Services - Mental Health Recovery Specialists”.

Our current NDIS provider number is 78585874.

What is the National Disability Insurance Scheme?

Who are they

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) launched in July 2013, following years of discussion about the need for a major reform of disability services in Australia. See the Our history page for more information about how the NDIS came about.

The NDIS is a new way of providing individualised support for eligible people with permanent and significant disability, their families and carers. The NDIS is the insurance that gives us all peace of mind. Disability could affect anyone - having the right support makes a big difference.

What do they do

They understand that everyone’s needs, preferences and aspirations are different. That’s why they provide to eligible people a flexible, whole-of-life approach to the support needed to pursue their goals and aspirations and participate in daily life.

  • They provide information and referrals, links to services and activities, individualised plans and where necessary, supports over a lifetime.
  • They raise community awareness and encourage greater inclusion and access to mainstream services, community activities and other government initiatives.
  • They support service providers to build capacity and be part of the scheme.
  • Over time, they will find new and better ways of providing support, by building on what works well and learning from the lived experience of people with disability.

Sunflower Services has more information about these services and support options.

Note: NDIS provides disability support. Assistance from the NDIS is not means tested and has no impact on income support such as the disability support pension and carers allowance.
