Making the NDIS Work for You

Your life. Your choice.

Achieve the life you want.

At Karingal, we understand you have your own goals, aspirations and interests. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funding and support for eligible people with a disability to help you achieve the life you want. You choose the supports and services which best suit you.

Karingal is a not-for-profit organisation that has been assisting and supporting people with a disability and their families across many areas of their daily lives, for more than 60 years.

Through our experience and knowledge, we recognise the importance of being flexible in providing support that is tailored to assist each person to achieve their goals. We listen to you and want to see you achieve. 

In 2013, we became one of Australia's first NDIS providers in the Barwon region trial site. In the years since then, we have continued to develop our expertise to support people with a disability through their NDIS journey. Our customer satisfaction rate sits at 90 per cent.

Our dedicated and professional staff can work with you to implement your NDIS plan and can also work with you on particular areas such as personal supports, housing, health and wellbeing, education and employment or developing social skills and networks.

Karingal has been active in local communities for many years and has extensive community networks and connections. We can assist you to become more involved in your local community whether it is joining in with a community group or gaining employment.

With Karingal you are not only developing your plan but a clear pathway to living the life you choose.

What is the NDIS?

The NDIS is about providing funds and support which are tailored to meet the individual needs of people with disabilities.

The NDIS focuses on enabling each individual to live the life they want with the right care and assistance to meet their needs, goals and aspirations. Lifetime support is available to people who meet the eligibility criteria.

Karingal currently provides services to over 2,000 clients throughout Victoria including up to 1,000 NDIS clients in the Barwon and North East Melbourne regions.

 

What is the NDIA?

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is an independent Federal Government agency with the responsibility for managing and implementing the NDIS.

The NDIA is responsible for NDIS funding and planning to ensure participants continue to receive the support they require.

The NDIA also works with Local Area Coordinators (LAC) to help participants understand the services available in their area and support them in the transition to the new scheme.
