Your questions answered
The NDIS is new and it can be confusing, so we're here to help simplify it a bit. We have collected some of the most common questions we get about the NDIS and how we work with it.
The NDIS, or National Disability Insurance Scheme, is a new government programme which provides funding for a wide variety of disability care services and other supports.
Under the new programme, anyone who has a disability will be eligible for NDIS funding amounts to pay for the care or supports they need to maximise their quality of life.
The NDIA, or National Disability Insurgence Agency, is the government agency in charge of handling and implementing the NDIS. The NDIA can provide you with information, referrals to specific services, individual care plans, and more.
To access the NDIS, you need to get in touch with the NDIA. They will guide you through the process of applying, review your eligibility, and set you up with funding for your care plan.
As a registered NDIS provider, we provide a variety of services for a wide range of clients. All our support services are personalised for your individual needs and provided by qualified support workers and personal care attendants.
Our NDIS services include:
- Daily personal activities
- Domestic support
- Community nursing
- Community access
- Daily living and life skills
The NDIA will work with you to define the supports you need in your NDIS plan. This may include 'support co-ordination' if you need help to set-up and manage the services you receive. We don't provide support co-ordination for your care plan ourselves; we instead work with you and your support co-ordinator to deliver some or all of the support services outlined in your care plan.
Through the NDIS, you will receive funding for the specific services and support you need. There are no set levels for NDIS funding amounts.
You will receive as all the necessary funding to pay for the care and support you need as determined with your NDIS planner.
Your NDIS funding can be used for a wide variety of different things, including:
- Daily living, life skills, and self-care activities
- Community and social participation
- Aids and equipment
- Home modifications
- Transport and community access
- Employment and workplace support
- Therapeutic supports
The NDIA can help you understand all the services and supports which are available to you and how you can access them.
