Are you a resident of Burwood living with a disability? Do you know that you can qualify to receive government funding and support? Have you heard about the National Disability Insurance Scheme? If not, there are many benefits that you can be able to receive from the government and that can really change the way you live. There are many people with disabilities and who are not able to access health facilities and equipment needed for them to function normally. With the introduction of these insurance schemes, there are many people who are going to benefit from it hence it is important that you consider registering for it. Some of the benefits that you will likely receive are discussed below.
One of the major benefits as to why you should consider registering for NDIS is that you will be able to personalize the kind of funding you want, when and where you will receive the support. Many people are afraid that they may have to be travelling long distances to be able to receive the support they need but that is not the case. The kind of support you receive is so independent as you will be the one to determine when and where to get the funding. It offers you total freedom and independence of how to be able to receive the support that you are looking for.
Given that the support is given to people living with disabilities that are permanent and significantly affects the way they lead their lives, it is important to make sure that you are not left out if you fall under this category. This is due to the fact that you will set your own goals and have a plan of how you intend to meet them. It basically offers you the opportunity to determine what you want to achieve over a period of one year and how you will be able to achieve them. You will be helped in the process hence there is no need to worry about anything that you are going to do.
People living with disabilities are normally left out in most of the community activities that take place throughout the year. This has however changed since the introduction of NDIS, they can be able to get access and participation in the community such as social and economic activities. For many years, the disabled have not been able to access such activities but through NDIS they can be able to access them and lead normal lives and without the fear of being discriminated against by others in the community.
However, to be able to access NDIS, you will be required to find an accredited and certified NDIS representative who will be able to guide you through the process of application. They have been given the mandate to determine who qualifies for the support and should not discriminate on any particular person with disability. Once you identify such a representative, you will then schedule an appointment when you want to be briefed and start the application process which is quite easy to do with their help.
