These therapies can be provided at Royal Rehab, in the comfort of your own home or a community setting.

From cycling and tennis, to fishing and beach access— there’s something for everyone.

You can trial a range of car modifications and our team will work with you to assess, advise and offer support through all the necessary steps toward independent driving.


You need to meet the following requirements to access the NDIS:

  1. You have a permanent and significant disability that affects your ability to take part in everyday activities.
  2. You must be less than 65 years old when you first access the scheme.
  3. You are an Australian citizen, a permanent resident or a New Zealand citizen who holds a Protected Special Category Visa.
  4. You need to live in an area where the NDIS is available.

Check if you are eligible to become and NDIS participant.

  1. Firstly, you need to submit an Access Request Form. You can either make contact with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) by phone (1800 800 110) or obtain an Access Request Form  through the NDIS website.
  2. Complete the Access Request Form in full, including all relevant information relating to your disability. You may need to ask multiple clinicians and medical practitioners to fill out parts of the form, and provide appropriate, recent reports for you to submit with your application.
  3. Return the completed form and supporting documents to the NDIA.
  4. The NDIA will determine whether they have enough evidence to support your application. You will receive a letter to let you know whether you have met the necessary criteria to access the NDIS or if you need to provide additional information.
  5. If you have met the criteria, you need to start collecting documentation and evidence about your day-to-day support needs. If you are working with allied health therapists, or are supported by professionals in any of your day-to-day activities, they should be able to assist you by providing reports. Be sure to think about all aspects of your day-to-day care needs, including accessing the community, employment, hobbies and any equipment needed for daily activities. The documentation you provide will be used in discussions at your planning meeting.
  6. You will be contacted by either an NDIA Planner or a Local Area Coordinator (LAC) to arrange a planning meeting in your local area. After the meeting, a final plan will be sent to you outlining your funded supports.

Local Area Coordinators (LAC) work for our NDIS partners in the community to assist people with a disability. They have three key functions:

  • They engage with local organisations and communities, including other government services, to build awareness of disability and improve opportunities for people with a disability to access and actively participate in community activities.
  • They work directly with individuals with a disability and their families, to improve capabilities, access information and support in the community, build community networks and access mainstream services, such as health and education.
  • They are usually the main point of contact for NDIS participants. They work with participants (aged seven years and older) to develop, implement, monitor and review their plan and provide ongoing support to assist them to achieve their goals.

We assist with the following NDIS support categories:

  • Personal care and support coordination: assistance with daily life at home, in the community, during education and at work.
  • Supported independent living: we offer supported accommodation and drop-in supports.
  • Improved daily living skills: our team of allied professionals can help you learn new techniques and skills.
  • Increased social and community participation: we help you access the community and facilitate group activity sessions, for example sports activities, with qualified recreational therapists.
  • Improved health and wellbeing: we provide dietetics and help you to make healthy lifestyle choices.
  • Improved learning: Our In-Voc Program provides assistance with career exploration and planning, skill and knowledge development, return to work support, assistive technology and job-seeking skills.
  • Improved life choices: we can assist you with your NDIS planning.
