The introduction of the NDIS is strongly positive. It makes it possible for you to choose service providers and take control over decisions that affect how you live your life. The NDIS is based on the development of a personalised plan that outlines the supports and services you require to meet your goals and live an inclusive life. Services and supports, funded through the NDIS, can include assistance with activities such as household tasks, personal care, sustaining informal supports, recreation, physiotherapy, accommodation and more.
How to access the NDIS
To become a participant in the NDIS you must first contact the NDIA to discuss your eligibility.
Pre-planning and your planning conversation
To determine your individual support requirements you will have a ‘planning conversation’ or ‘planning meeting’ with an NDIA planner. This meeting can be held at your home, local NDIA office or another venue of your choice. During this meeting the planner will discuss your goals and supports and services you may need. The information you provide during this meeting will be used to develop your personal plan, so it is important that you are well pre-prepared.
Without an understanding of where your money goes in your NDIS plan, it can be difficult to work out how best to use the funds.
