Here’s where you can find information and resources about the NDIS. It’s a creative piece of legislation (in more ways than one), and we’re learning more about it all the time as it continues to be refined. We hope to take you along on this journey as it unfolds.

The NDIS aims to provide support and peace of mind to eligible individuals with physical, cognitive, psychosocial, or sensory difficulties.
As a program, it supports hundreds and thousands of participants, carers, service providers and their families, giving back to the country in so many ways.

To get the most out of your plan, find an NDIS provider who shares similar values to you and already speaks the language of the NDIS. This is where Eneca can help.
