The NDIS provides funding to people with disabilities who are eligible to spend more time with family and friends, have greater independence, access new skills, jobs or volunteer work in their community, and improve their quality of life. The NDIS also connects anyone with disabilities to services in their community. It takes the work of brilliant people to make that happen. Each of those present has their role to play.
It doesn't matter who you are, where you work, or what your job asks of you. You are part of an important change and we want to support you to do the best possible job. The NDIS provides funding to eligible individuals based on their individual needs. The NDIS funds a variety of supports and services that may include education, employment, social participation, independence, living arrangements, and health and well-being.
The NDIS is making a real difference in the lives of Australians. We help people with disabilities to be more independent, find work, study and have more options and control over how they want to live their lives. As the name suggests, open employment is open to everyone. It is a workplace where people with disabilities work with people without disabilities.
The advantage of open employment is that you will be paid at least the minimum wage, which is higher than the wage from supported employment.
