The NDIS has transformed the way that Australians with disability are provided necessary supports, with funding for a variety of supports to facilitate living a fulfilling life and enabling the person to take control. If you are under 65 and have a permanent disability, you may qualify for NDIS support. Early intervention through the NDIS helps individuals develop essential skills, fostering active participation in the community and workforce. NDIS funding can also assist with accessing education, public housing, medical services, and community groups. Importantly, the NDIS is designed to complement the support provided by family and friends, ensuring that necessary and reasonable supports are provided. NDIS funding is not affected by your income and does not impact disability pensions or carer payments.
If you believe you are eligible, you can contact the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to request an Access Request Form. Complete the form with relevant information about your disability and support needs. After submitting the form, the NDIA will review your application and may arrange an assessment to determine the appropriate supports and funding you may be eligible for under the NDIS.

Participants will then be contacted by the NDIA to meet and make a plan. Your plan is important. It sets out your Goals, and shows you your funding and supports. To get ready for your NDIS plan, start thinking about your support needs and what your goals may be. Your existing supports and services will continue until you have a NDIS plan.
The NDIS law gives you the right to funding to appoint a Plan Manager. A Plan Manager will manage the costs, recording keeping, reporting and bills in your plan. You can also talk to the NDIS about appointing a Support Coordinator. A support Coordinator will manage your service providers and help you find the supports you need.
We understand that parents and carers often develop an understanding of their loved one’s needs, hopes and goals, in a way no Service Provider ever can.
We are also aware that many parts of the NDIS have not been designed taking account of the crucial role of parents, carers and family members in the life of a participant or the amount of time and energy that families contribute to caring for a loved one.
If you feel overwhelmed or confused at any stage (most people navigating the NDIS do!) please get in touch with our friendly team- We would love to hear your story and are here to help.
It’s not widely communicated but the NDIS Legislation give the right to every participant to make an election on how they want their NDIS Plan managed. And to be funded for a professional Plan Manager. A professional Plan Manager will take away the burden of all the invoice and admin tasks, and you can access both registered and unregistered providers. And the funds don’t come at the expense of other parts of the plan.
After years of caregiving, both you and your family member deserve support in navigating the NDIS plan. A skilled Support Coordinator will understand all available options, prioritize your goals and well-being, and ensure quality support within the plan's scope. Remember to request Support Coordination in your NDIS Planning Meeting, explaining why it's "reasonable and necessary." For assistance with meeting preparation or any inquiries, please don't hesitate to contact us. We're eager to hear your story and offer our help.
Our Team can also assist and provide guidance in gathering the necessary evidence when preparing for your planning meeting, to increase the chances of being for funded for the supports you know are needed for the person in your care.
We can help you determine which supports may be required to improve quality of life, and how to work toward funding approval for those supports. Supports may include Daily Living Support Workers, Counselling or Positive Behaviour Support, and Supported Independent Living opportunities.
