The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) was launched in the Hunter area in July 2013 for people receiving specialist disability services. Those living in the Lake Macquarie Local Government Area (LGA) entered the scheme in 2014 and those in the Maitland LGA in mid-2015. By July 2018, all eligible residents nationally will be covered by the Scheme.
This is an exciting time! It will provide people with disability the opportunity to make choices and have control over the types of support needed to achieve dreams and goals.
Mai-Wel has a 50+ year history of providing services and supports to people with a disability in the areas of employment, independent living skills, education and training, supported holidays, flexible living options, social opportunities, leisure and recreation, fitness and wellbeing and encourages the circles of support.
The Mai-Wel Group is registered to provide support for National Disability Insurance Scheme participants.
