NDIS

SANDBAG is excited about the opportunity NDIS provides for people with a disability to direct and choose what they want to achieve, and the support or assistance they require to do so.

NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is changing the lives of not only people with a disability and their carers and families but will also have a long term impact on the broader community.

The NDIS is designed to empower people living with disability and their families through individualised funding. With a personalised NDIS package, you will have greater access to tailored resources that will help you live an enriched life and achieve your personal goals. You choose the services you want, and who you want to provide them.

Many people are not aware that they may quality for NDIS assistance – if unsure, please speak to us and we can provide you some guidance on what may or may not qualify.

NDIS service provider

SANDBAG Inc. is a registered NDIS service provider, meaning you can choose SANDBAG to provide services through your NDIS package. Through individual packages, people will have more choice, independence and opportunity than ever before, and will benefit from tailored services that meet their individual requirements.

SANDBAG currently provide Disability Support Workers to assist you to improve your connection and involvement in community – we call this our Community Linking & Access Services (CLAS). Through our social enterprise SEED Parks & Property Maintenance we can also provide you with gardening and cleaning services.

An individual’s NDIS funding is to be used to provide ‘reasonable and necessary supports’, which means the services, activities and equipment you need to achieve your goals and live the best life you can as independently as you can. These supports are determined by the NDIS, and will be reviewed based on your personal goals when you are planning your package.

The NDIS is at different roll out stages throughout Australia. Brisbane Metro suburbs north of Brisbane River have rolled out and NDIS is now rolling out in the Moreton Bay region up to Redcliffe.
