NDIS PPE Request

Closes 31 Dec 2020

Opened 12 Apr 2020

Overview

The Australian Government is prioritising Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) distribution from the National Medical Stockpile to NDIS providers and self-managing participants that are most in need. All NDIS PPE requests are reviewed and triaged based on urgency by the Department of Health.

Please complete this application for your request to be considered.

You may choose to start an application, to step you through key considerations. You do not need to complete or submit the application if you do not want to proceed.

You may choose NOT to submit an application if:

  • You are seeking PPE that is not masks. At this time only masks are being distributed. We will advise the sector if this changes.
  • You are NOT in a priority category. 

A priority category is an NDIS provider or a self-managing participant who:

  • cannot access PPE through their usual means, and
  • receives or delivers personal care or other activities that require close physical contact, where:
    • the participant has a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19, or
    • there is an immediate threat to the continuity of safe quality care due to a lack of access to PPE supplies, and
    • there is a clinical need for PPE

You can read more about PPE needs and prioritisation at https://www.ndis.gov.au/coronavirus/providers-coronavirus-covid-19/connecting-and-helping-participants

After you have submitted this application, you will receive further contact or advice from a Department of Health officer about the request.
