Do I need NDIS funding to get support?

Last updated 1 March 2023

According to the 2021-22 quarterly report released by the NDIA, just over 518,000 Australians are receiving NDIS funding. There are more than 4.4 million Australians are living with disability, so only about 12 percent of these are eligible for access NDIS funding packages.
