What is the NDIS and how can Good Sammy help?
Australia’s National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funding to support Australians with disability, their families, and carers. The NDIS provides funding support for people with disability to improve their skills and independence over time.
Good Sammy is a registered NDIS provider which means we deliver supports for employment, community participation and supports to develop independence.
Through our Academy programs we guide participants to reach their goals and participate in their community. Call today to discuss how we can help.
For additional information about the NDIS please visit the National Disability Insurance Scheme website.
Am I eligible?
To become an NDIS participant you must:
- Have a permanent impairment that significantly affects your ability to take part in everyday activities; or have a developmental delay.
- Be aged less than 65 when you first apply to enter the NDIS.
- Live in Australia in an NDIS area on a specific date.
- Be an Australian citizen or hold a permanent visa or Protected Special Category visa.

How can Good Sammy support me?
Our support is tailored to those looking for work and wanting to live a more independent life within the community.
Pre-planning your NDIS funding: If you’re unsure about your eligibility to receive NDIS funding, or if you are eligible but are not sure about the next step, we can assist.
We understand the NDIS can be confusing. At Good Sammy, we can help you navigate the NDIS and maximise your funding. Please contact us if you have any questions.
Other Funding Pathways
You could be eligible for funding for your disability through an organisation separate from the NDIS. The funding pathways might include:
The Department works to advance opportunities, community participation and quality of life of people with a disability.
If your disability is the result of a motor vehicle accident, a claim could be made through ICWA.
If your disability is the result of a workplace injury, a claim could be made through WorkCover WA.
