People with psychosocial disability have the same rights as any other Australians to decide what is best for them and to have choice and control over their lives. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities describes these rights. One purpose of the NDIS is to help support people with these rights.
The NDIS can support you to live a meaningful and contributing life by:
Aiding you to have choice and control in pursuit of your goals
Supporting your providers to better respond to your needs
Providing choice of support options and providers to meet your support needs
Supporting recovery with recovery coaches and other supports available to eligible participants
Linking you with the information, referrals and supports you need
Raising community awareness and encouraging inclusion.
