The NDIS and Quest for Life
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an Australian Government scheme that provides a new 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 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.

NDIS Provider number: 4050004464
Who is eligible to access the NDIS?
To be eligible, you must be an Australian citizen, living in Australia, or hold a permanent visa and have a permanent disability that significantly affects your ability to take part in everyday activities. You must be under 65 years of age when you first access the scheme.
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 such as Anala 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.
Will funds go directly to my bank account?
If you choose to manage your funding, you will need to open a separate bank account specifically for your NDIS funds. The NDIA will put the money into this new account and you will then pay organisations for the support they provide to you.
If you decide to have your plan managed for you, or if you require support to manage your funds, then the organisations you have chosen will be given the money directly by the NDIA to cover the cost of your support.
