NDIS Services

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) aims to support a better life for Australians with a significant and permanent disability.

The NDIS provides individualised support for people with disability, aiming to:
• build independence
• give people who have a disability control over their funds and choice as to who provides them with assistance

Benefits of the NDIS

  • Real control over your supports

We support people with disability to have greater control over their own funding and choice over who provides the assistance or services they need.

  • Build your independence

Whatever level of assistance you need, it’s all about you becoming independent. Independence gives you more flexibility and greater opportunity.

We welcome the opportunity to help people with disability develop life skills and greater independence in the community, at home, pursuing education and employment. Currently, WISE Employment provides NDIS supports in Tasmania, and access to a variety of employment and allied services via NDIS in northwest Melbourne.
