A person may make a request to the Agency to become a participant of the NDIS. This is referred to as an access request. [s18]

A person needs to fulfil the access criteria and navigate the process of making an access request to become a participant.  A person who has made an access request is referred to as a prospective participant.

A person who wants to become a participant may wish to consider the range of support and advocacy options available to assist with this process, for instance by completing forms or providing information and guidance. See Navigating the NDIS.
