Understanding NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme, or NDIS, is a new approach to enhance the quality of life for people with disabilities, as well as their families and carers in Australia. This programme provides funding to Australians under the age of 65 who have a permanent and significant disability.

The goal is to support their needs and aspirations for independent and comfortable living. People with disabilities have direct control over their funding, giving them the flexibility and choice to access support that suits their individual needs.

NDIS Funding

How NDIS Funding Operates

Your National Disability Insurance Scheme plan outlines the amount of funding you have, the categories available to you, and their intended purposes. We can discuss your plan with you to clarify your options based on your funding.
Key points

NDIS plans consist of three support budgets

  • Core Supports budget: Allocated for assistance with daily tasks, activities, community participation, and transport.
  • Capacity Building Supports budget: Reserved for supports that enhance your independence and help you develop new skills.
  • Capital Supports Budget: Designated for one-time purchases you may require, such as technology and home modifications. It also covers Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA). Funds from the Capital Supports budget can only be used for their specific purpose.
