Holdsworth Community is an approved NDIS provider and offer a range of NDIS services  and support for people living with a disability of all ages.

We are fast approaching the roll out of the NDIS in East Sydney.

To help people with a disability and their families prepare for the NDIS planning meetings we offer pre-planning sessions to any families who want them and can provide individualised information regarding the services that that you would like to receive from Holdsworth with details regarding how they would fit in the NDIS pricing guidelines so you can include them in your package.

If you haven’t had a meeting or would like more information about our NDIS services please just give us a call at any stage – we are more than happy answer questions or chat through options.

To speak to one of the NDIS team please call 9302 3600 or email sofia.zogalis@holdsworth.org.au

What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is part of the the Australian Government’s changes to the way people living with a disability will be funded in the future.

How does it work?

If you are eligible for assistance under the NDIS, you will receive funding to purchase the disability services, supports and equipment that you have been assessed as needing.  You can then choose your NDIS service provider or providers to deliver what you need.

You can choose to manage your funds yourself or have them managed by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).

When is the NDIS coming to me?

The changes that are required to existing disability support systems are significant and the government is introducing the changes gradually, to ensure a smooth transition for people with disability and support providers.  Your existing services and supports will remain in place until the NDIS is introduced into your area.

Stage 1 is already in place across much of NSW and Eastern Sydney is scheduled for NDIS roll-out from 1 July 2017.

Can Holdsworth help me with the NDIS?

Holdsworth is committed to working with you to ensure a smooth transition to the NDIS and will be talking to you regularly about the changes in the months ahead.

Holdsworth is already registered to provide supports for National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participants who live in areas where the scheme has already arrived.

In the lead up to the NDIS implementation in Eastern Sydney, we are working with participants and families on individual preplanning to ensure you are ready to make the most of your NDIS planning sessions.
