The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Decision Support Pilot Program assists people with limited decision-making capacity to navigate the NDIS system.
This Service is for:
Do you need support accessing NDIS but have no family or friends to help you make decisions?
Every person has the right to make decisions about their own lives, including people with disabilities. This right is embedded in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with a Disability.
Sometimes people need support to make decisions. Supported decision making is about helping a person with disability understand the information they need, such as considering the possible consequences when making a decision, so that they can make a choice that is right for them.
The eligibility criteria for the program is people who:
- Need to engage with the NDIA about participation in the NDIS
- Are between the age of 18 and 65
- Have limited decision-making capacity; and
- Have no other appropriate decision-making support such as a family member, carer or other significant person who is willing and able to support the person to make decisions.
Are you someone who fits this criteria, or do you know someone who does? Please contact us at Brain Injury SA to see if we can help.
