“The level of customer care and service Alphacare provided was excellent… Alphacare was so thoughtful and empathetic to our Clients difficult circumstances. From an OT perspective, it was great to finally find a company that stocks such a wide variety of disability items as this allowed me to trial a wide range of products with my Client and clinically justify the most appropriate items to them without having to get out another company to do a trial. Saving my Client’s time and NDIS money. Thanks again Alphacare for all your hard work.”

NDIS related FAQ’s:

A. You are eligible for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) if you:
• are under 65 years of age, and
• are an Australian citizen or resident or permanent visa holder, and
• meet the disability or early intervention requirements.

If you aged 65 years and over you may not be eligible for the NDIS. In most cases, you will receive support through the Commonwealth aged care system.

For further information, refer to the NDIS for people aged 65 years and over fact sheet.

Q. Where can I get help in determining my eligibility for the NDIS?
A. Local Area Coordinators can help you start this journey. Find out more about becoming NDIS ready by clicking on NDIS Ready

Local Area Coordination will be delivered by Partner Organisations in the Community. Partners and the NDIA will work closely to build and improve the way the Scheme is delivered to make sure it works for people with disability in the best possible way.

The Partners in the Community Program enables the Scheme to be implemented at a local community level. The NDIA is looking to partner with suitably experienced and qualified organisations, with strong local knowledge and understanding of the needs of people with disability or developmental delay, to deliver Local Area Coordination under the Program.

The NDIA will establish these partnerships to build on existing relationships, voluntary and community action enabling people with disability to gain the benefits of community membership. These benefits include maintaining or gaining employment and participating in everyday activities and community life in natural settings.

Local Area Coordination will work with both individuals and the community in areas in your state and territory.

A. Local Area Coordinators have three key roles:

2. Link you to information and support in the community, and
3. Work with their local community to make sure it is more welcoming and inclusive for people with disability.
A. Within your core budget, money may be allocated against daily activities, community participation, transport, etc. However – you can use the money across the core support category as you see fit.
