The NDIS and Social Work

We2Care welcomes you to a new disability services approach of providing high-quality services that recognise the importance of self-determination, active participation and capacity building. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing support to Australians under the age of 65 who have a permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to enjoy an ordinary life. The NDIS promotes support services that assist people with a disability to build skills and capabilities that enable them to participate in the community and employment.

The values, qualifications and skills of social workers constitute a precise match with the person-centred approach of the NDIS. The NDIS supports the independence and social and economic participation of people with a permanent impairment or condition. The values of ‘choice and control’ that underpin the scheme are consistent with the values and principles of self-determination and empowerment that have guided the social work profession for many decades. By adhering to the profession’s holistic and person-centred approach, social work services provide individualised support that enables and empowers individuals with disability to realise their vision and enhance their quality of life. The uniqueness of social work practice is respect for the client’s choice and involvement.
