Some people with disabilities face difficulties in regularly and actively participating in ordinary life areas (such as employment), and they are more likely to suffer from ill health, discrimination, and violence than those who do not have a handicap. People with disabilities who require assistance can seek assistance from specialized disability services, mainstream services, or informal caregivers. They may also be eligible for financial aid to assist them with day-to-day tasks (see Income support for more information on financial assistance). The National Disability Agreement (NDA) and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) both offered assistance to people with disabilities in 2018–19. (NDIS).
