A new way of working together

The federal government has a new way of paying for interpreting services. The new name is National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

The NDIS is a way of providing support for people with a disability in Australia. It is being trialled in several regions before being fully rolled out across Australia in 2019. View trial sites.

Ideas for your NDIS Plan

Here is some information on getting ready for NDIS. If your situation changes make sure you speak with NDIS Planner about your needs.

Can I access a NDIS Plan?

If you are Deaf, under 65 years old and living in a trial site, you may be able to get a NDIS Plan. To find out more, visit the My Access Checker.

I already have a NDIS Plan

NABS is now a registered service provider for the NDIS. If you have a NDIS Plan that includes interpreting hours, please remember to tell us when you book an interpreter.

What will change when I contact NABS?

If you have an NDIS package, interpreting services will be paid for from your package.
