National Disability Insurance Scheme

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funding to Australians who have permanent and significant disability. With this funding, Australians would receive the disability support they need.

The NDIS can also provide all people with disability with information and connections to services in their communities such as doctors, sporting clubs, support groups, libraries and schools, as well as information about what support is provided by each state and territory government.

At current, Deaf Sports Australia is not a registered NDIS provider but remains to be a service provider nonetheless. Some services provided in the Active Deaf Kids Program are as follows:

  • Active Deaf Kids
  • Active Deaf Sports Clubs
  • Active High-Performance

More information about these services can be found on the Active Deaf Programs page.

State and Territory Deaf Sports Committees in QLD, NSW, VIC and other states/territories also have other programs and events.

National Deaf Sports Organisations such as Deaf Netball Australia, Deaf Rugby Australia, Deaf Touch Football Australia and many other sports also run Championships across Australia.
