What is the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing Australians under 65 who have a permanent and/or significant disability, with funding to receive the necessary care and supports to achieve their goals. It’s one of the biggest changes people living with disability have experienced in a long time. By 2020, the complete rollout of the NDIS will touch the lives of more than 460,000 Australians nationwide.
ATLAS is an NDIS registered provider. This means that people with disability can use their NDIS funding to access our services and supports.
ATLAS & The NDIS
ATLAS recognises that independence, choice, control and freedom to live the way we choose are fundamental rights that belong to everyone.
We also strongly believe, that every individual has strengths, capacities, resources and challenges that are unique to them, and that one-size-fits-all approach to accessing community life does not work.
ATLAS approach to providing recreation sport and leisure support is designed to support successful inclusion and participation into community life.
We have been providing support, driven by individual participant’s choice and control, since our inception. We have a unique and highly flexible approach to engaging and managing disability supports.
ATLAS model of service is customised to help you live a full and independent life by supporting you in a way that is unique and assists you to reach your goals and aspirations. This means we work with you to determine how the support service operates, who provides the support and where it is provided.
