The National Disabilities Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

New Directions Psychology is a registered provider under The National Disabilities Insurance Scheme (NDIS). 

The NDIS was set up as a new way of providing individualised support for eligible people with permanent and significant disability, their families and careers. The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is responsible for delivering the NDIS. The NDIS supports people with disability to build skills and capability so they can participate in the community and employment.
