NATIONAL DISABILITY INSURANCE SCHEME
WHAT IS IT?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) supports people with a permanent and significant disability that affects their ability to take part in everyday activities.
Joblink Plus will work with you to identify supports you need to live your life. Supports may help you achieve goals in many aspects of your life, including independence, involvement in your community, education, employment and health and wellbeing.
The NDIS gives you more choice and control over how, when and where your supports are provided, and gives you certainty you will receive the support you need over your lifetime.
It also focuses on early intervention where getting early supports can reduce the impact of disability on you and your child.
FOR PEOPLE WHO ACCESS THE NDIS
If you are able to access the NDIS as a participant, we will look at the supports you currently receive and how well they are working for you. This may include your family, friends, mainstream or other community services.
If required, the NDIS will also fund reasonable and necessary supports that help you achieve your goals such as therapies, equipment, home modifications, mobility equipment, taking part in community activities or assistance with employment.
An NDIS plan tailored to your individual needs will be developed to help you achieve your goals. This could include your existing supports if you are happy with your arrangements and if they meet your needs and goals.
At Joblink Plus we are focused on providing you with the skills and assistance to live your best life.
We will work with you to agree on a plan of assistance, and activities to help you find your job of choice. We will work with you to help you deal with any challenging issues as you start your employment journey.
Once you have a job, we will continue to support you and will develop a plan with you to help you keep your job.
For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders peoples, we will deliver services and engage with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participants in a way that acknowledges and respects these cultures.
We will ensure that staff are appropriately trained and that this organisation is committed to getting the best employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participants.
