The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an Australia-wide system of providing individualised planning, funding and support to people living with a disability, their families and carers. It’s a lifetime approach to the delivery of support services, that will change over time with your circumstances.
As a participant, the Scheme provides you with real choice, control and flexibility through personalised funding for the services that most benefit you. The NDIS is managed by the NDIA (National Disability Insurance Agency).
Gain an understanding of Core, Capacity Building and Capital Budgets.
With your NDIS plan, you can choose how you manage the service provider/s who will deliver your support and services. You have three options:
You pay providers and manage any administrative processes yourself.
You choose a provider to manage all payments on your behalf and to help with service agreements, hiring staff and preparing reports about NDIS funding.
A mix of self-managed and Local Coordinator-managed:
For example, you might want the Local Coordinator-manage your therapy funds, but you manage your consumables.
If you are already receiving disability services and support from a provider, your Local Area Coordinator will advise when you will be able to access an NDIS plan. You can continue to work with this provider, as long as they are registered to provide NDIS services. If you are not receiving any disability support, you will need to contact your Local Area Coordinator in your area to be assessed. You will work alongside your Local Area Coordinator to develop your plan which will contain an outline of your goals, what you need to achieve, and the funding you will receive.
