Applying for NDIS - Everything You Need to Know

At My DSS, we are privileged to witness remarkable success stories within the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). We are excited to share three inspiring achievements that highlight the resilience and dedication of our participants and our unwavering commitment to making a positive impact in their lives. Join us in celebrating these incredible milestones and let’s continue empowering individuals to live their best lives!

Success Story 1: Overcoming Challenges with Courage


A 52-year-old Man Battling Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease, Depression, and Anxiety We are thrilled to announce that our client, a wonderful 52-year-old man from North Sydney, has been approved for the much-needed supports through the NDIS! Despite bravely battling Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, depression, and anxiety, he never gave up hope.

For weeks, our dedicated team worked tirelessly, collaborating with his doctors, occupational therapists, and mental health professionals to gather the necessary evidence and demonstrate the essential supports he requires. Their unwavering dedication and expertise in navigating the complex process have paved the way for this significant achievement.

With the increased funding from the NDIS, our client can now access a wide range of services and supports tailored to his unique needs. This includes specialised therapies, assistive devices, and ongoing mental health support. By providing him with the necessary tools and resources, we are empowering him to overcome his challenges and live a fulfilling life.

Success Story 2: Triumphing Against All Odds


Two Individuals Approved for SIL and SDA Funding We’re proud to announce that two of our participants have been approved for Supported Independent Living (SIL) and Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) funding through the NDIS. Their journey to success has been marked by challenges and setbacks, but their determination and our team’s unwavering support have made it all possible.

Overcoming Hurdles One of our participants had faced a previous refusal, while the other had been recovering in the hospital. However, their resilience and the dedicated efforts of our team enabled them to secure the vital support they truly deserve.

With the newfound SIL and SDA funding, our participants can now access safe and suitable accommodation, along with the necessary support services to enhance their independence and overall well-being. This achievement marks a turning point in their lives, and we are honoured to have played a part in their remarkable journey.

Success Story 3: Empowering Mental Health Support


A Lady Suffering from Multiple Mental Illnesses In our continuous efforts to support individuals with mental illnesses, we recently had the privilege of assisting a lady who was facing significant challenges due to several forms of mental illnesses. Unfortunately, she did not have enough funding to access the treatment and supports she desperately needed.

Our team at My DSS recognised the urgency of her situation and took immediate action. Not only did we increase her funding through the NDIS, but we also found a provider with support workers who are specifically trained in mental illness and behavioural support. This personalised and specialised approach ensures that she receives the comprehensive support she requires.

By addressing her mental health needs, we are empowering her to live a more fulfilling and meaningful life. Through therapy, counselling, and the development of coping strategies, she is gaining the tools necessary to navigate her daily challenges with resilience and strength.
