The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) can seem overwhelming to many people. Feedback from the mito community has shown gaps in NDIS support, including:
- Understanding how the NDIS can help someone impacted by mitochondrial disease (mito)
- Help to navigate NDIS applications and planning processes
- Lack of knowledge about mito from NDIS service providers
To address this, Mito Foundation developed the NDIS Navigation Service.
What is the NDIS Navigation Service?
This Mito Foundation NDIS Navigation Service aims to help people diagnosed with mito maximise their success in seeking support under the NDIS. Led by Ruth Yuthok (NDIS Navigator), the aim is to improve knowledge and confidence to access the disability support needed to maintain quality of life and equitable participation. This will be delivered through education, resources, and one-on-one guidance.
