The National Disability Insurance Scheme supports people who have a permanent disability to achieve their goals.

You could qualify for NDIS support if you were born with a permanent disability or have acquired one later in life that severely impacts on the ability to do everyday tasks.

The NDIS can be very hard to understand for people using the scheme for the first time.

Our Settlement Services team have created this information booklet to help the Karen community learn more about disability and the NDIS.

This initiative has been created in partnership with Intereach, Rights Information and Advocacy Centre (RIAC), Amicus, Carer Support Services and Bendigo Health.
