NDIS and you

The NationNDIS supportal Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will support people with a permanent and significant disability that affects their ability to take part in everyday activities.

NDIS in Queensland

The NDIS will be phased in across Queensland between 1 July 2016 and 30 June 2019. People will move to the NDIS at different times depending on where they live. Find out when the NDIS will come to where you live.

Get NDIS ready with Spinal Life

Under the NDIS we support people with spinal cord injuries or other physical disability (permanent or temporary) aged 0 to 65 years.

As a registered NDIS provider we can work with you and your family to make the transition to the NDIS as seamless as possible.

With the support of our Access and Engagement Officer you can

  • Be supported to understand the scheme and have your questions answered
  • Have access to pre-planning tools and checklists to help you think about what you need to discuss at your plan meeting
  • Have someone to assist you with your pre-planning  and attend your plan meeting with you if you wish

To book a pre-plan meeting or to find out more on how we can support you please contact our Access and Engagement Officer Samantha Kent at 3391 2044 or email

You can read our NDIS frequently asked questions for more information, including spinal-specific detail.
