The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is the independent statutory agency in charge of rolling out the new National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) across Australia. The National Disability Insurance Scheme is the new way of providing support to Australians with disability, their families and carers. The website contains a page focussed on the scheme in South Australia, with details of NDIS updates across various regions. There are sections for helping those developing their NDIS plans, or those with general questions about their supports.
