All About NDIS National Disability Scheme
What is NDIS?
There are around 4.3 million Australians who have a disability. Within the next five years, the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will provide more than $22 billion in funding a year to an estimated 500,000 Australians who have permanent and significant disability. For many people, it will be the first time they receive the disability support they need.
The NDIS can provide all people with disability with information and connections to services in their communities such as doctors, sporting clubs, support groups, libraries and schools, as well as information about what support is provided by each state and territory government.
NDIS – What does it mean?
National:The NDIS is being introduced progressively across all states and territories.
Disability: The NDIS provides support to eligible people with intellectual, physical, sensory, cognitive and psychosocial disability. Early intervention supports can also be provided for eligible people with disability or children with developmental delay.
Insurance: The NDIS gives all Australians peace of mind if they, their child or loved one is born with or acquires a permanent and significant disability, they will get the support they need.
Scheme: The NDIS is not a welfare system. The NDIS is designed to help people get the support they need so their skills and independence improve over time.
To be eligible for the NDIS you must:
- Have a permanent and significant disability or a developmental delay.
- Be an Australian citizen, or hold a permanent visa or a Protected Special Category visa.
- Be under 65 years of age.
- Need support from a person or equipment to do everyday activities.
If you are eligible for the NDIS, you will need to contact the NDIS and ask for an Access Request form, or alternatively, download the form via the NDIS website.
There are different eligibility processes depending on factors such as whether you are already currently receiving disability funding.
How can I find out if I’m eligible for the NDIS?
To find out if you are eligible for NDIS funding, you can use an online tool called the NDIS Access Checklist. This tool asks questions that can help you to work out if you are eligible for NDIS support.
If you need help in finding out if you are eligible or not you can also contact us on (03) 7035 6964 we will happy to assist.
What types of supports are funded?
The types of supports that the NDIS may fund for participants include:
- Daily personal activities
- Transport to enable participation in community, social, economic and daily life activities
- Workplace help to allow a participant to successfully get or keep employment in the open or supported labour market
- Therapeutic supports including behaviour support
- Help with household tasks to allow the participant to maintain their home environment
- Help to a participant by skilled personnel in aids or equipment assessment, set up and training
- Home modification design and construction
- Mobility equipment, and
- Vehicle modifications.
There are some kinds of supports that will not be funded or provided by the NDIS
The NDIS Act and the rules made under the NDIS Act also tell us which supports will not be funded by the NDIS.
The NDIS cannot fund a support that is:
- The responsibility of another government system or community service
- Not related to a person’s disability
- Relates to day-to-day living costs that are not related to a participant’s support needs, or
- Is likely to cause harm to the participant or pose a risk to others.
What is Reasonable and necessary supports?
The NDIS funds a range of supports and services which may include education, employment, social participation, independence, living arrangements and health and wellbeing.
In order to be considered reasonable and necessary, a support or service:
- must be related to a participant’s disability
- must not include day-to-day living costs not related to your disability support needs, such as groceries
- should represent value for money
- must be likely to be effective and work for the participant, and
- should take into account support given to you by other government services, your family, carers, networks and the community.
Types of support budgets
Every person living with a disability has different needs. Your NDIS funding is there to help you meet your short and medium to long-term goals in your NDIS plan.
Your funding is based on what is ‘reasonable’ and ‘necessary’ to achieve your goals, in addition to the support provided by family, friends, and other community and government services.
There are three types of support budgets that may be funded in your NDIS plan.
Core supports budget
Your Core budget is the most flexible, and includes four categories of support:
- Consumables (e.g. purchasing everyday use items such as continence aids)
- Daily Activities (e.g. assistance with self-care activities during the day or evening)
- Assistance with Social and Community Participation (e.g. supports to enable you to engage in social or recreational activities)
- Transport (e.g. if you are unable to use public transport because of your disability).
The good news is you can generally use Core budget funds allocated against one support category to purchase supports under another support category unless funds have been set aside for a specific purpose such as periodic payments for transport, or any Core budget line item type that is:
- Specialised Disability Accommodation i.e. accommodation for participants who require specialist housing solutions due to significant functional impairment and/or very high support needs
- In-kind e.g. Government pre-paid supports such as school transport or some therapy supports
- Stated item (including Quotes for certain items) e.g. assistance in a shared living arrangement.
In these cases the funds within a category must only be used for that specific purpose. For details about your Core supports please refer to your NDIS plan.
Capacity building budget
The Capacity Building funding is allocated across eight support sub-categories, each matched with the goals you’ve come up with in your plan. You can choose how to spend these funds to purchase any approved individual support within its category, but won’t be able to move funding from one category to another.
The Capacity Building support categories include:
- Choice and Control e.g. training in planning and plan management
- Daily Activity e.g. therapy aimed at building your capacity to participate
- Employment e.g. employment related assessment and counselling
- Health and Well being e.g. exercise advice required due to impact of disability
- Home Living e.g. support to obtain/retain appropriate accommodation
- Lifelong Learning e.g. assistance moving from school to further education
- Relationships e.g. positive behavioural support strategies to reduce behaviours of concern
- Social and Community Participation e.g. Individual life skills development and training including public transport training and support, developing skills for community, social and recreational participation.
Support Coordination (if required) is included in the Capacity Building budget. This is a fixed amount for strengthening participant’s abilities to coordinate and implement supports in their plans and to participate more fully in the community.
Capital Support budget
The Capital Support budget relates to supports such as assistive technology or modifications to your home and as such depends on quotes from suppliers. Funds within this budget can only be used for their specific purpose (e.g. a rail in the bathroom or a wheelchair) and cannot be used to fund other items.
The Capital Support budget has two support categories:
- Assistive Technology – includes equipment items for mobility, personal care, communication and recreational inclusion (e.g. wheelchairs or vehicle modifications)
- Home Modifications (e.g. rail in the bathroom).
Starting your plan
The NDIS can work with you to put your plan into action, and depending on your situation there are a range of people who can help you implement your plan and support you to start receiving supports.
Understanding your plan
The NDIS allows you to have as much choice and control as possible over the supports funded or provided in your NDIS plan.
Your ECEI Coordinator, LAC or Support Coordinator will help you start your NDIS plan.
These would have been discussed with you during your planning process and may be a Local Area Coordinator or an ECEI Coordinator. Some people may also have a Support Coordinator funded in their plan to help them get started.
What’s in your plan?
Your NDIS plan will be based on the discussion you had in your planning meeting.
Your plan will include the following information:
Information about you
This section includes basic information about your disability, your day-to-day activities, where you live, who you live with, or who cares for you.
Family and friends
This section includes information about the support you get from family and friends that is not funded but will help you work towards your goals.
Services and community groups
This section includes information about services and supports funded and delivered by community or other government services like support groups, health centres, libraries and public transport.
This section includes the current goals you would like to achieve as part of your plan and the long-term goals you have identified for your life. Goal-setting is an important part of the NDIS and each of your supports and services should be helping you achieve the goals in your NDIS plan.
This section tells you what funding you have been allocated in each support category and what this funding is for. You may not have all the support categories funded in your plan. Some people might have one or two support categories funded and others may have more.
This will depend on your individual needs and may change from plan to plan based on the supports and services you need. Your funding is based on what is reasonable and necessary for your needs, in addition to the support provided by family, friends and other community and government services that you need to live your life and achieve your goals. You must only use your NDIS funding on supports and services that are related to your disability and will help you to achieve the goals in your NDIS plan.
How your ECEI Coordinator, LAC or Support Coordinator can help you use your plan
Your ECEI Coordinator, LAC or Support Coordinator will help you start your NDIS plan.
They can help you:
- Understand your plan and what supports and services you can pay for with your NDIS funding;
- Learn what is the responsibility of other services, such as the health or education systems, or your state or territory government;
- Connect with community and other government services;
- Find providers who meet your needs and will help you achieve your goals;
- Put service agreements and service bookings in place with your providers;
- As point of contact if you have questions, concerns or something in your life changes.
Sharing your plan
Your NDIS plan is yours.
You can choose who you share the details of your plan with, including if you would like to share your plan with anyone other than your providers, for example with a doctor or family member.
You or your nominee have the option to share parts of your plan with providers who have an active service booking with you.
You can provide consent through the myplace portal or by visiting an NDIA or partner office.
If you agree to share your plan with providers they will be able to see basic plan details including your name, NDIS number, date of birth and your goals.
It’s important to remember that it is your decision to allow providers to access parts of your plan if providers demand access to your plan. You may choose to share your information with some providers and not others.
If you have a Plan Manager you will be able to agree for them to see your NDIS budget in addition to the basic plan details. If you work with a Support Coordinator you will also be able to agree for them see additional details in the ‘About Me’ and ‘My Supports’ sections of your plan as well as your NDIS budget and the basic plan details.
