Disability Support Fees & Funding

To access our services, you should be receiving the Disability Support Pension.

The Disability Support Pension is an income support payment provided through Centrelink.
Depending on your circumstances, there are a number of ways you can fund your services.

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

The NDIS supports Australians who are under 65 and have a permanent disability. It covers services that guide you in building the skills you need to actively participate in the community.

The NDIS is rolling out across Western Australian in a phased approach, and will be fully rolled out by 2020. For more information, visit www.ndis.gov.au

Other sources

You may be able to access funding from other sources such as the Insurance Commission of WA or private insurance.

Self-funded

We also offer services to self-funded clients.

For more information give us a call on 1300 223 968.

Free NDIS tools and resources

The NDIS Toolkit helps guide individuals with disability, families and carers to get access to and plan for the NDIS. Funded by the Department of Communities Disability Services, the toolkit will help you prepare for your planning meeting by taking out all the guesswork.
