Orana is a supporter of the NDIS and is committed to providing the best possible services under the new scheme.
What is the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) supports people with a permanent and significant disability that affects their ability to take part in everyday activities.
The NDIS supports people with disability to build skills and capability so they can participate in the community.
The NDIS will give people with disability more choice and control over how, when and where supports are provided, and provides certainty on how the support is received.
The NDIS is a new Commonwealth funded scheme that replaces current state funded disability supports.
