Registered NDIS Provider

We provide support to adults living with a disability and will ensure you get skilled support that enables you to maintain your independence and self-esteem.

To access disability support services under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Australia, you must:
⦁ be aged under 65
⦁ have a permanent disability that affects your everyday life
⦁ meet residency requirements
These are NDIS eligibility requirements.

If you are eligible for the NDIS, you should contact NDIS to get an NDIS Access Request Form.

After your NDIS application has been approved, you will be invited to a planning meeting with an NDIS Local Area Coordinator Partner to create your NDIS plan. Carers Queensland are the Local Area Coordinator for the NDIS on the Sunshine Coast, including Noosa and Gympie local government areas. To discuss how the NDIS could work for you, call the Local Area Coordination team at Carers Queensland on 07 5409 3300 or email SunshineCoastLAC@carersqld.com.au

Adapt Lifestyle Support can also meet with you, ahead of your planning meeting, to talk about the supports we could offer you, what is available from other services and accompany you at the planning with the Local Area Coordinator.

This can help you feel confident that the supports you request will help you to achieve your goals. Once you NDIS plan of supports is approved we can make an agreement about how we deliver the services you have chosen us to provide. Remember, you can choose support services from more than one provider.
