NDIS Services at Quest for Life  

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an Australian Government scheme that provides a way for people with a disability to live the life they choose. The NDIS enables people with a disability to access support through an individualised funding package. It gives people with a disability the opportunity to make decisions about their supports, including who will provide them.

The Quest for Life Foundation is a certified NDIS Provider which means, for those eligible, the Australian government will pay the cost of a person attending a 5-day residential program at our Centre.

If you are living with a psychosocial disability – a disability that may arise from mental health issues – a Quest for Life program (Moving Beyond Trauma or Healing your Life) will assist you on your road to recovery in a safe, non-judgemental, nurturing environment.

A Quest for Life program gives you practical tools and strategies to enable healing, builds your resilience and purpose, assists you to achieve an optimal state of personal, social and emotional wellbeing, and helps increase your independence and social and economic participation.

How do I attend a program at Quest funded under the NDIS?

  1. Contact NDIS to find out if you are eligible
    Telephone: 1800 800 110
    Website: ndis.gov.au 
  2. Request a Quest for Life program as part of your 12-month NDIS plan.
  3. Contact a registered NDIS plan manager to manage your plan. This allows you greater flexibility than the NDIS default management.

If you need more information about how Quest fits in with the NDIS, please call our Program Advisers on 1300 941 488.

When will I receive the funding?

You will begin to receive NDIS funding after you have completed your plan with the NDIA and the plan has been approved.

How long does a plan last?

Each plan is developed with you to cover supports for 12 months. However, if significant changes to a plan are required, based on your new situation, a change in health conditions, or you need more time to fully explore your support options, then the timing of a new plan can be brought forward or extended.
