The NDIS provides people with disability greater choice and control to achieve their goals and aspirations.

If you’re in an area that the NDIS is coming to soon there are some simple things you can do to prepare.

The NDIS will ask you to think about what your goals are and what supports you may need.

Goals are ideas you have about what you want to do in your life. They can be big or small and cover many parts of your life. For example, goals can be becoming more independent, getting a job, going to school, spending time with friends or being healthy.

A good way to start is to think about what makes a good day and what makes a bad day for you at the moment with the current support and services you receive.

Scope can help you with this process. We have people who can help you understand what services and supports you currently get and what you could access under the NDIS. Contact us by filling out the contact form on our website, or calling 1300 472 673.

There are also independent organisations that can help support you or your family member:
