The Federal Government has a new way of paying for interpreting services. This is called the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
The NDIS is a way of providing support for people with a disability in Australia. It will be fully rolled out across Australia in 2019.
Can I access a NDIS Plan?
If you are Deaf, under 65 years old and living where NDIS is available, you may be able to access a NDIS Plan for your interpreting. To find out more, visit the My NDIS Access Checklist.
Can I use NICSS if I have a NDIS Plan?
NICSS is a registered service provider for the NDIS. NICSS clients with a NDIS Plan can use their package for NICSS interpreting.
If you have a NDIS Plan that includes interpreting hours, please remember to tell us when you book an interpreter.
What will change when I contact NICSS?
The Contact Centre will continue to operate and bookings will be received and made for new and existing clients. You don't need a NDIS package to book a NICSS Interpreter.
NABS & NICSS are holding a series of NDIS Workshops for the Deaf community at a variety of locations throughout Australia. For more information on where and when these workshops will take place, visit our NDIS Workshops page.
