the NDIS by determining eligibility.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) funds several supports that
enhance the independence, social participation and overall quality of life for people with disabilities. Supported Independent Living (SIL) is a service that provides the necessary support to individuals with disabilities to live on their own while maintaining their independence.
People with disabilities may come across circumstances where their informal supports
are unavailable for a short period of time. In such situations, NDIS Short-Term
Accommodation (STA), including respite can help them access the care and support that they need at a place away from home for up to 14 days at a time.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) supports people with disabilities in
various ways to pursue their employment goals. During the planning meeting, the prospective
participants can discuss their employment goals. The NDIS planner or their Local Area
Coordinator (LAC) can guide the participants and encourage them to set certain employment goals in their NDIS plan.

they have a profound impact on our well-being and sometimes provide disability support to individuals, the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) only funds assistance animals and does not allocate funds for pets or companion animals.
