Civic and the NDIS
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is bringing a major change to the way that people with disability in Australia are funded. The NDIS will give you greater control over your own life with the ability to determine what disability supports you wish to receive – and who will provide them.
You now have control and choice.
- You decide what supports you need
- You develop your plan
- You choose your service provider
Civic is a registered service provider under the NDIS and offers a wide range of individualised services to meet your needs and the supports funded in your NDIS Plan.
