National Disability Insurance Scheme

NDIS application resources

Accessing the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) can be a complicated process. The fact sheet at the bottom of this page provides a brief introduction to the NDIS and tips for preparing an application.

If you would like more detailed support, we encourage you to refer to the webinar powerpoint for Emerge Australia’s NDIS financial literacy webinar series (currently under review), alongside the fact sheet. To access the recorded webinars please contact click here for NDIS and here for DSP

Other links and resources can assist with this process, and provide examples of material referenced in the webinar, including:

  • Emerge Australia’s NDIS webinar slides, download here.
  • ME/CFS and NDIS guide for GPs, download here.
  • an example of an NDIS planning workbook from the Australian Government, download here.
  • an example of an NDIS Access Request form from the Summer Foundation, download here.

Please note that Emerge Australia is currently not able to provide an individual (one-to-one) advocacy service but we will answer questions where we can. You can find a list of organisations who are able to offer individual help with applications and appeals in your local area here. Get in touch with our Patient Support and Information Service to ask a question here.
