CBS and the NDIS

What is the NDIS?Registered NDIS Service Provider

NDIS stands for National Disability Insurance Scheme. The NDIS is the new way of providing support for people with disabilities, their families and carers.  The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is the Government department responsible for managing the NDIS.

The NDIS is being gradually rolled out across South Australia and when you can apply to access the NDIS depends on your age and where you live.  You can apply to access the NDIS up to 6 months before it rolls out in your location.  For more information on the roll out of the NDIS, please visit NDIS SA Information Pack

You will need to meet the access requirements to be able to get support from the NDIS.  For more information on the access requirements, please visit NDIS Access Requirements

The NDIA will tell you whether you meet the access requirements or not.  If you do not meet the requirements they will assist you to connect with alternative support services.

If you do meet the access requirements you will get the opportunity to meet with an NDIS Planner or Local Area Coordinator (LAC) to discuss your goals and support needs.  Preparing for this meeting is very important, as the amount of funding provided by the NDIS (which is decided by the NDIA) is based on the information you provide.  For more information on preparing for your planning meeting, please visit Developing Your NDIS Plan  You can use a workbook to ensure you take all the required information to your planning meeting, NDIS Planning Workbook  If you are a parent or carer and would like more information, please visit Supporting Families and Carers.

Your NDIS Plan lists your goals, your support needs and the funding allocated to those needs.  Once you have your NDIS Plan you can choose the service providers that you would like to support you.  For more information about understanding and starting your plan, please visit Starting your NDIS Plan

Community Bridging Services (CBS) Inc. is a registered NDIS provider. That means we provide disability supports which may assist you to achieve the goals identified in your NDIS Plan.

Amelia Rix Award

I became involved in supporting Amelia through community recreation and other life experiences in around 1992, when she was about 14 years old. Her positive attitude and love of life and people was a reflection of her parents (the late Barbara Rix OAM and Ted Rix). Over this time other staff worked closely with Amelia. Out of the sad and hurtful experience of Amelia’s passing, Barb found a way to make good, by establishing this Award dedicated to Amelia’s memory, to help other people to be happier by recognising their strengths and successes.
