The NDIS and Bindi Enterprises

Bindi Enterprises - Supported Employees
The National Disability Insurance Scheme has been designed to give people with disability greater control and choice over the support they receive. The NDIS provides individuals with funding packages based on their personal needs and goals.

If you are under the age of 65 with a permanent and significant disability you can now be provided with the reasonable and necessary supports you need to live an ordinary life. The NDIS provides choice and gives you greater power to determine your own services and direction.

Bindi Enterprises provides a range of innovative disability employment and training services in Alice Springs. The service can provide you with an extensive choice of disability support services to promote growth, lifestyle quality and self-determination. Bindi will support you to build skills and capability, so you can participate in the community and in supported or mainstream employment.
