NDIS Services

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an Australian Government initiative to provide a person centred support system giving people with disability a choice and control.

The NDIS focuses on removing barriers that are faced by people living with disabilities, their families and carers. Arthritis ACT is a registered NDIS service provider. Our NDIS program focuses on diet and exercise, improving functionality through good nutrition and exercise.
