Although Full Circle Therapies are no longer a registered provider -we continue to be guided by the Principles of the NDIS and the Rules of the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission including:
You are eligible for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) if you:
People with disability, or their family or advocate, can use the NDIS eligibility check list to see if they are eligible. If so, they can then apply to receive support through the NDIS. NDIS funding is available for “reasonable and necessary supports” to help people with disability to reach their goals and aspirations, take part in activities to increase their social and economic participation and to live a life as “ordinary” as possible.
People who have been approved to be included in the National Disability Insurance Scheme are referred to as “Participants”. People or organisations who provide these Participants with products and/or services are referred to as “Providers”.
