Understanding NDIS Funded Supports

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funding tailored to the individual needs of eligible participants.

This funding is designed to support various aspects of daily life, ensuring participants can achieve their personal goals and live more independently.

Types of Funded Supports

The NDIS funds a broad range of supports to assist participants, including:

  • Daily Personal Activities: Assistance with essential daily tasks such as personal hygiene, dressing, and eating.
  • Transport: Funding for transportation to participate in community, social, economic, and daily life activities.
  • Workplace Support: Assistance to help participants obtain or retain employment in both open and supported labor markets.
  • Therapeutic Supports: Includes various therapies, such as behavior support, to enhance well-being and functionality.
  • Household Tasks: Help with domestic chores to ensure a safe and clean living environment.
  • Aids and Equipment: Professional assessment, setup, and training for using aids and equipment.
  • Home Modifications: Design and construction services for home modifications to improve accessibility.
  • Mobility Equipment: Funding for devices that aid mobility, such as wheelchairs.
  • Vehicle Modifications: Modifications to vehicles to enhance mobility and independence.

For more details on the types of supports funded by the NDIS, participants can refer to the official NDIS guidelines.

Supports Not Funded by the NDIS

The NDIS Act and its accompanying rules specify certain types of supports that the NDIS will not fund. These include:

  • Supports Covered by Other Systems: Any support that is the responsibility of another government system or community service.
  • Non-Disability Related Supports: Supports that are not directly related to a participant’s disability.
  • General Living Costs: Day-to-day living expenses that are not associated with the participant’s support needs.
  • Unsafe Supports: Any support that may cause harm to the participant or pose a risk to others.

For a comprehensive list of non-fundable supports, participants should consult the NDIS guidelines.

Decision-Making Guidelines

The NDIS has published updated guidelines detailing the decision-making process. These guidelines are grounded in NDIS legislation and rules, outlining the criteria considered when determining support eligibility.

The updated guidelines aim to make the NDIS processes more transparent, clearer, and easier to understand for participants. More information on these guidelines can be found in the Participant Service Charter.

By adhering to these guidelines, the NDIS ensures that participants receive appropriate, effective, and safe supports tailored to their individual needs.
