The introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is designed to support people with a significant and permanent disability throughout their life to take part in everyday activities.
By 2020 the NDIS will be fully rolled out across Australia with an estimated 460,000 participants.
Under NDIS, participants are entitled to funding of reasonable and necessary supports to achieve their goals, increase their independence, and increase social and economic participation. Supports can take many forms including mobility equipment, therapeutic support, home modifications and consumable products.
BrightSky Australia has been a registered provider for NDIS participants since 2013 when the NDIS trial was underway in the Newcastle-Hunter region. Since that time, BrightSky has remained continuously involved with the NDIS and now supplies specialised healthcare products to participants in all states and territories.
The types of supports that BrightSky regularly supplies to NDIS participants includes continence aids, skin integrity solutions and specialised nutrition products.
