Mobo Group is a registered provider of NDIS services and a government funded provider of both supported employment and open employment services through being an Australian Disability Enterprise and Disability Employment Services provider.
Through the Australian Disability Enterprises program, Mobo Group provides meaningful supported employment and support to people living with a disability who may not be able to work in ‘open employment’ in the general community, whilst those job seekers engaging in ‘open employment’ do so with support from our Employment Services team.
Whether you are already working at Mobo Group or new to us, and you are under 64 years of age, you may be eligible to access the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
The NDIS is run by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA). The NDIS is the new way that the government is providing disability support to Australians. The NDIS is designed to help people with a disability achieve their goals through individual directed funding.

The team at Mobo Group are here to help you in getting started on the road to having your own NDIS plan.
You can get started yourself as an NDIS Participant also by following these steps:
1 Call the NDIS National Access Team on 1800 800 110 and ask for an NDIS access request form to apply to become a NDIS participant. You can apply 6 months before rollout in your area of residence. The NDIS in South Australia is available for adults 18-64 years old from July 2017. More information on start dates can be found at https://www.ndis.gov.au/about-us/our-sites/SA.html#MapMet
2 Complete this application process over the phone or request to have it sent to your home address in the post. More information can be found at https://www.ndis.gov.au/people-with-disability/access-requirements/completing-your-access-request-form.html
3 If applying by post, you will be sent an Access Request Kit which will contain a reply paid envelope to the NDIS central mailing address. You can mail the application back to the NDIA office using this envelope.
4 Once your application has been sent in, you will be notified if it has been approved or not.
5 If your application does not get approved, you will not be an NDIS participant and will not receive funding.
6 If approved, you will be notified if you are under the ‘disability access plan’ or ‘early intervention’.
o Disability Access Plan’ refers to a support plan that will fund you for life due to a significant disability that requires ongoing support and funding.
o ‘Early intervention’ means you will receive NDIS funding for a certain period of time. This may be due to your disability not requiring ongoing support and funding for life.
7 After you are approved, you are officially an NDIS participant.
Once registered the typical process and key points you need to know in preparing for your meeting are listed below.
