Developing and Maintaining a Support Circle

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new Federal system for ensuring people with disability have the support they require to engage more fully in social and economic life.

The scheme will provide eligible participants with reasonable and necessary supports and change the way disability services are delivered to ensure participants have more choice and control over the supports they receive.

Support circles can play a key role in assisting people with disability and their family/carers with informal decision making, advocacy and planning. Support circles are also an effective strategy to ensure there are people in your life who are not paid to be there.
