NDIS Support

NDIS Support and Access Project:

  • Provides direct support to Community with their NDIS journey including gathering information, for submitting an application, creating a plan and obtaining services and value from their plan.
  • Identifies NDIS access pathways for Community and barriers that prevent Community from utilising NDIS
  • Is co-creating culturally appropriate resources to assist Community understand the NDIS
  • Builds cultural knowledge within mainstream organisations so they can provide services in a culturally safe manner
  • Strengthens Community relationships and build an effective model of engagement for the future


The Oonah NDIS team recorded 2 videos to assist Community to understand and navigate NDIS

The Oonah NDIS team also participated in a co-design project which developed the Yarn about me and my wellbeing Workbook which you can download and use to help you develop your NDIS plan of supports and services

Good news stories

A number of Community have already been assisted by the Oonah team to:

  • Obtain NDIS funding for the first time
  • Receive increased funding of more than 150% at plan review
  • Identify appropriate supports to spend funding
  • Change NDIS suppliers to more culturally appropriate or specialist providers

We are currently not taking on new clients as the team is at capacity and we already have a waitlist.
