The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) brings significant change for People with a disability, disability service providers, and the broader community. People with disability will be able to exercise greater choice and control over the supports they receive and who they receive them from.
The NDIS means significant differences in the way resources are made available to people with disability. The scheme is currently being trialed throughout many parts of Australia.
CSS are committed to working with new and existing clients and families to smoothly transition to an NDIS model of support. CSS is passionate about working with and partnering with other organisation to deliver a new era of disability support. CSS are excited about expanding its range of flexible and individualised responses through the NDIS.
