EnableNSW and the NDIS
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will gradually become available across New South Wales from 1 July 2016.
The NDIS is a new way of providing funding for care and other supports (such as equipment) for eligible people. Equipment supports may include continence products, wheelchairs, beds and prosthetic limbs.
In NSW, funding for some of these items currently provided through EnableNSW will move to the NDIS.
EnableNSW will continue to provide assistance for people 65 years of age and over or not eligible for the NDIS. Many of our services, including the funding of respiratory consumables and equipment (such as oxygen concentrators), will continue to be available to people of all ages.
If you wish to speak with us about current EnableNSW equipment, services not covered by the NDIS or using EnableNSW as an NDIS service provider, please phone us on 1800 362 253.
