I can’t believe what a change they have brought into my life!

Paul Johnes, Participant
"It’s been only about 5 months since I have joined with Hands on People and I can’t believe what a change they have brought into my life! I am so happy and satisfied that I am provided with the best assistance and services that I have ever got. The wonderful friendly staff paves the way for us to have fun and a laughter even in the difficult times and they always encourage us to open-up. I have made many friends at the day centre and got myself engaged into various creative activities. Moreover, The Inclusion Centre, has turned out to be like a second home for me, as we are treated like a family there, which is not a small thing. I am so thankful and greatly appreciate the organization’s efforts that made a difference in my life."


Get answers to the top questions participants and caregivers have before engaging with the NDIS and working with Hands On People.

The NDIS is the National Disability Insurance Scheme. It’s how people under the age of 65 who have a disability can get the care and supports they need.

The NDIS is for those with a permanent and significant disability which impacts on their ability to take part in everyday activities.

If you’re eligible, you will work out the reasonable and necessary supports you need to live your life and achieve your goals. You’ll then receive funding to pay for these supports.

Find more information on the NDIS website.

Before the NDIS was introduced, disability services in Australia were all over the place.

The funding you received was depended on how, when and where you acquired your disability, as well as where you lived.

Some people got enough funding. But some people got none.

It was not a fair system. After an exhaustive inquiry, the Federal Government agreed that people with a disability deserved a fairer system – and more control.

They introduced the NDIS in 2013.

The NDIS provides funding for lots of different things, such as employment, early intervention, accommodation, doing activities, and more.

You’ll get to choose when and where you receive these supports and which disability service providers you work with.

The NDIS is currently being rolled out across Australia under the management of the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), which is responsible for delivering the scheme.

To be eligible for the NDIS, you need to comply with a number of conditions.


You need to live in an area where the scheme is already rolled out.


You must be under 65 years at the time of your application.


You’ll be an Australian citizen, or hold a permanent visa or a Protected Special Category visa.


You must have a permanent disability that significantly affects how you can communicate, move, care for yourself, or manage your life.

Early Intervention

You might be eligible if early intervention would substantially improve your functioning, or delay or decrease a decline in functioning, for you or your child.

We’re with you on your NDIS journey

We started Hands On People because we believed we could do better for Territorians with a physical, intellectual or psychosocial disability. We could see how challenging it was for people just like you to get the right advice and support to make the most of your NDIS Plan. It should be easy to access the help you need so you can live an independent and meaningful life. 

Our team have worked in health and disability services for more than 10 years and know exactly how the NDIS works. It might seem confusing and scary, but we’re experienced in navigating the system and linking up participants with the right supports. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach.

 We work closely with you to develop your capacity to achieve your goals and be an active part of your community.

We’re committed to getting the best out of the NDIS for you. Book your free NDIS pre-planning session and let us help you.
