NDIS Overview and Resources

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a national scheme for people with a disability.

It moves away from the previous system in place, making sure to give the funding directly to you. It aims to provide you with choice and control.

The NDIS is overseen by the NDIA (National Disability Insurance Agency).

For many people, it means it will be the first time they receive the supports they need.

To receive financial support through the NDIS, you need to meet eligibility requirements. You can view the criteria here.

What Will The NDIS Fund?

The NDIS funds reasonable and necessary supports that relate to a person's disability to help them achieve their goals. Some examples include:

Access4u has joined forces with South Australian based Career Employment Group (CEG) to tackle a state-wide staff and skill shortage facing the disability sector in South Australia.

As part of a new campaign both organisations are calling for South Australians to consider a traineeship in disability support as the sector struggles to meet demand due to expediential growth.

Our CEO, Cathy Miller, says there is a critical need to urgently build a trained and robust workforce that is based on strong values and a desire to empower the lives of South Australians living with disability.

“There is a very real staffing and skills crisis facing our industry in South Australia and beyond. This challenge presents an opportunity for students to undertake flexible, real life on-the -job training that will lead to tangible and rewarding career pathways”, she says.

“Access4u has always recruited for values and trained for skill. We strive to show our trainees that this is a diverse and fulfilling career that is so much more than just personal care”.

CEG CEO Andrew Anninos says that the traineeship program with Access4u is an important step in lifting education standards and investing in trained workforces for the future.

“The traineeship program is an opportunity to reshape, build and upskill a workforce that is experiencing significant challenges”, Mr. Anninos says.

“While the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted training standards across Australia, now is the time to lift education standards and invest in training that leads to the better provision of services”.

Access4u is seeking interest from potential trainees who are looking for a career that promotes flexibility and makes a genuine difference to the lives of South Australians.

“We are excited to be building the disability workforce and encourage people to connect with us to discover the fantastic opportunities for personal and professional growth that exist within the industry.

There is nothing more rewarding than mentoring trainees who become integral members of the Access4u family. These are the same people who are shaping the future of disability support”, Ms. Miller says.

Access4u is a not-for-profit organisation that helps guide you through the NDIS to ensure the most optimal and effective outcomes for your ongoing objectives. From your coordinator to your mentor, Access4u works towards your personal goals whilst increasing independence and adding value to every life we support.

We make a difference by providing personalised care to every individual and their aspirations. Through working with a diverse group of service providers we can ensure support for you in a timely, innovative, and flexible way. View our NDIS supports here.
