    During and after an emergency, people with disabilities my need extra help to understand, communicate and recover. The following resources have been developed for people with a disability, their families and carers.

    National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

    Any NDIS participant who needs assistance with their disability supports due to the bushfire situation is encouraged to contact 1800 800 110 to discuss their circumstances.

    Participants impacted by the bushfires are being prioritised to ensure they can continue to receive their disability related supports, including any additional supports that may be required such as replacing equipment, additional care or therapies.
