How does the NDIS work?
The NDIS provides funding to people with a disability based on their needs, hopes and dreams. Individuals are able to decide what their hopes and needs are, develop their NDIS plan, choose their provider and then live the life they want!
We know navigating the NDIS for the first time can be confusing, so we’ve developed the video below to help guide you through the process.
Remember – Samaritans is a qualified NDIS provider. We’re here to support you through the journey to a more supported life.
