Piptree Kids is proud to be a Registered National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Provider under NDIS Provider Number: 4-FTJA1NR and Category: Recreational Equipment (Assistive Technology)

Understanding the NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is an independent statutory agency. Their role is to implement the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), which will support a better life for hundreds of thousands of Australians with a significant and permanent disability and their families and carers. The NDIS will mean peace of mind for every Australian - for anyone who has, or might acquire, a disability.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing support for Australians with disability, their families and carers.

The NDIS will provide about 460,000 Australians under the age of 65 with a permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to live an ordinary life.

As an insurance scheme, the NDIS takes a lifetime approach, investing in people with disability early to improve their outcomes later in life.

The NDIS gives all Australians peace of mind that if their child or loved one is born with or acquires a permanent and significant disability they will get the support they need.

The NDIS supports people with disability to build skills and capability so they can participate in the community and employment.

Which categories are available to you?

Your NDIS plan will state which categories you have available. If the plan states that you have Assistive Technology, we will be able to process your order. Unfortunately, we cannot use any other categories to process your orders with.
