NDIS at Wesley Mission

Welcome to NDIS at Wesley Mission

Welcome to NDIS at Wesley Mission

Wesley Mission has been supporting the roll out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) since it was first launched in 2013 by the Australian Government. We have been delivering services under this model in trial sites in the Hunter regions and we’re dedicated to supporting its rollout to the rest of New South Wales.

What is the NDIS?

The NDIS is a new way of providing funding and supports to people with disability. Under this system, the funding you need for support services will be allocated to you, not a service provider. That means you have more choice and control over your support.

The Australian Government launched the NDIS in 2013 and it is being progressively rolled out across the country.

Your existing services and supports will remain in place until the NDIS is introduced to your area or made available to your age group.

Are you eligible?

You may be eligible for funding under the NDIS if you:

  • have a significant and permanent disability
  • are aged between 0-65 years old
  • require early intervention
  • are an Australian citizen.

To find out if you are eligible, call the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) on 1800 800 110 or read the NDIS Access Checklist.

If you are eligible, you will need to complete forms and send them to the NDIA for processing. 

If you are already a Wesley Mission client, we will contact you before the NDIS is transitioned in your area, to help you with the process.

Our team is ready to answer your questions about the NDIS and help you or the person you support get the most out of the scheme. For more information, please email ndis@wesleymission.org.au or call (02) 9641 7009.

What does permanent and significant disability mean?

You have a permanent and significant disability if your impairment is, or is likely to be permanent (i.e. it is likely to be life-long) and substantially reduces your ability to participate effectively in social or economic activities or perform tasks or actions without the help of other people or technology or equipment (other than common items such as glasses).
