A new review

Despite living with disability, Muhammad was knocked back for the NDIS. PWDA supported him to apply for a review and gain the support he needed.

Muhammad lives with disability, having been diagnosed 10 years ago with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome.

When he applied for the NDIS due to the increasing impact of his condition, he was declined and informed he was not eligible.

How PWDA helped

Mohammed came to PWDA to inquire about the best way to approach the NDIS for a review of his application.

Once a PWDA advocate looked into the details of his case, we supported him to gather the necessary evidence for a review of his case and demonstrate he was eligible to access the NDIS.

Muhammad finally received a substantial plan for core supports and therapies, as well as additional funds for vehicle modifications, a hoist and other important home modifications to maintain his independance.
