Some NDIS participants use dog guides as a disability support.
Assistance animals can support people with a disability to live safely, become more independent and complete everyday tasks.
NDIA will only fund an assistance animal which has passed, or will pass, your state or territory’s Public Access Test after considering whether an assistance animal is reasonable and necessary support that will meet participants needs and help them to reach their goals. This will ensure that the animal is suitable to accompany and support NDIS participants as they participate in the community.
If an assistance animal is included in your NDIS plan, funding may also be provided for necessary training of the animal and its handler, as well the extra maintenance costs of an assistance animal (over those of an equivalent companion animal or pet).
