NDIS plans are built based on what you discuss in your planning meetings, and in this public issue we will help you understand your NDIS plan.
Your plan will include the following information
1. Information about you
Includes basic information about your disability, your daily activities, where you live, who you live with or who cares for you.
2. Family and friends
Includes information about the support you get from family and friends. These supports are not funded but will help you achieve your goals
3. Services and community groups
Include information about services and supports that are funded and provided by the community or other government services such as support groups, health centers, libraries, and public transportation.
4. Your goals
Include short-term goals you hope to achieve as well as long-term goals you have set for your life. Goal setting is an important part of the NDIS. The NDIS supports you will receive are centered around your planned goals.
5. NDIS-funded supports
Include what funds you have allocated in each support category and what this money is used for. You may not have funding for all support categories in your plan. Some people may be funded in one or two support categories, while others may have more.
The support categories depend on your individual needs and may change in your next plan as your needs change.NDIS funds programs in addition to the support provided by family, friends, and other community government services, and must also be reasonable and necessary. You may only use your NDIS funds for supports and services related to your disability.
Categories of support in the program include
1. Budget for Core Supports
Core supports help you with your day-to-day activities. Your core support budget is the most flexible, and in most cases, you can use your funds for any of the four support categories below. However, in some cases, you do not have flexibility, especially for transportation funding.
2. Capacity building Support budget
Capacity building support helps build your independence and skills to help you achieve your goals. Unlike your core support budget, your capacity building support budget cannot be moved from one support category to another. Funds can only be used for approved supports that fall within that capacity building category.
3. Capital Support Budget
Capital supports include higher-cost assistive technology, equipment, and home or vehicle modifications, as well as funding for one-time purchases you may need (including specialized disability accommodations). Funds within the capital support budget can only be used for their specific purpose and cannot be used to cover any other costs. The Capital Support Budget has two support categories: assistive technology and home modifications.
Any specific service listed in the program is not flexible. This means that the funds have been allocated to a specific support or service and you cannot use the funds for any other purpose. You cannot exchange “listed supports” for any other support.
