Summary

  • Melbourne City Mission is a registered NDIS provider.
  • The NDIS supports people living with disability, mental illness or developmental delay.
  • Take charge of your funding and choose the support that’s right for you.

What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme provides funding for people with disability to access support, achieve goals and live a positive life.

Melbourne City Mission is a registered and experienced NDIS provider offering a range of services throughout Melbourne and Victoria.

We offer support that’s flexible to fit your needs, focused on your unique goals and all about achieving positive outcomes for you. 

Can I get support?

The NDIS supports people living with disability, mental illness or developmental delay. Funding can provide you with the reasonable and necessary support you need in day-to-day life and to achieve your goals.

Eligibility depends on your age, citizenship status and the impact of your disability.

To access funding you must:

  • be an Australian citizen, permanent resident or hold a Protected Special Category Visa
  • be aged under 65
  • have a permanent or ongoing condition that impacts your ability to complete everyday activities. Or, if you have a condition that could get better, having support now will mean you can do more things for yourself in the future.

For more information use the NDIS Access Checklist.

The scheme is now available across all of Victoria.

How it works

The NDIS puts you in charge of your funding and gives you choice and control over the services you purchase.

If you’re eligible, you’ll work with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) or an organisation they partner with called a Local Area Coordinator (LAC) to develop your plan.

Your NDIS plan will look at all areas of your life

You’ll discuss where you live, what you like to do, your daily needs, and your short and long term goals.

Through your plan, you’ll receive funding for supports to help you live a good life and achieve your goals. Your plan will be reviewed annually, or sooner if your needs change.
