What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a scheme developed to provide support for people with a disability, their families and carers. Eligible participants receive a plan catered to their individual needs. This plan provides the participant with funding to access supports from registered NDIS providers that helps them achieve their goals.

Occupational Therapy and Home Modifications may have been identified as services which will help you achieve your goals. This may be the case if:

  • Due to the impact of your disability, either you or your carer cannot access a room you normally would have access to, or
  • Your primary and current residence is in a state that is unable to support living and care arrangements

 

Am I eligible for the NDIS?

Eligibility to receive a plan under the NDIS is subject to the individual meeting a number of criteria. These criteria include age and residence requirements, as well as disability or early intervention requirements.

To find out if you or someone you advocate for are eligible for the NDIS, visit the NDIS website.


Why choose Scope Home Access? 

Scope Home Access have been providing services to the Disability Sector for over 30 years and, more specifically, as a registered NDIS provider since its nationwide rollout in 2016. Over that time we have gained significant experience designing home modifications solutions that meet the stringent NDIS criteria, as well as all relevant laws, regulations and building standards.

We also understand that your home is a sanctuary and have experience working collaboratively alongside people with a disability, their families and carers to ensure disruptions are minimised as work progresses.

 

"The builder was extremely flexible and understanding of our situation with our daughter and always worked around our needs without hesitation. Every tradesman that came onto the job showed the same flexibility and courtesy and were a pleasure to have in our home."  - Kylie G
