Individual Service Plans

This is a service where someone may have more than one issue to address. We focus on the individual needs of someone with epilepsy and provide information, support, education, case management and any necessary service to address these needs through group and/or individual service activities.

To arrange an individual service plan please call 1300 37 45 37 or email epilepsy@epilepsy.org.au

NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme is an Australia-wide scheme to support people with permanent and significant disability which will replace the current disability support system.

People with disability have the right to decide their own best interests, and to have choice and control over their lives and the supports they receive. Through the NDIS, people with disability will be able to access the reasonable and necessary supports they need, to live the life they want and achieve their goals and aspirations.

If you are living with epilepsy and qualify for the NDIS, ensure you include the epilepsy supports you need in your plan to enable you to safely access and participate in community activities, education and employment.

Information about Epilepsy and the NDIS can be found here. To help you identify the supports you may need complete the self assessment checklist.

Further information about the NDIS can be found here.

To discuss your epilepsy related needs and prepare for your planning meeting call or email Epilepsy Action Australia 1300 37 45 37 or epilepsy@epilepsy.org.au
