The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a government scheme aimed to increase the choice and control for people with a permanent and significant disability. The NDIS helps participants access the support right for them, build their skills and encourage improved quality of life. The NDIS encourages participants to make empowered decisions for themselves to enable choice and control.
An NDIS plan is your individual budget which is broken down into three areas:
Core – Supports to help you with day-to-day activities including social, economic and community participation. This may include the funding of consumables, transportation, support for daily activities and support for social and community activities.
Capital - Supports such as assistive technology, equipment or home modifications to increase your independence and safety.
Capacity building – Includes the funding of coordination of supports, therapies and activities to help you build the skills you need to reach your goals. This can include towards vocational goals, engaging in meaningful social activities and managing household tasks.
Your goals and your NDIS funding are unique and individual to you. For example, your goals may be in relation to your health and wellbeing, ability to manage household tasks, to increase your social and community participation or a combination of these. Your NDIS funding will help you to access the supports you need to pursue your goals and aspirations. This may include the funding of therapy supports, assistive technology, supported living arrangements, support coordination, plan management services and much more.
