What Is NDIS

The NDIS replaces the current disability support system, instead of people only having access to 'off-the-shelf' solutions, the NDIS recognises that everyone's needs, and goals are different and provides people with individualised support and the flexibility to manage their supports. The NDIS will assist people to fully realise their potential, help them achieve their goals, enjoy an ordinary life, have a say in their own future and participate in and contribute to society. The NDIS is tailored for each individual person to assist all people with a disability to live ‘an ordinary life’ just as other members of Australian society do.

It's called an insurance scheme because it is social insurance, not welfare. As an insurance scheme, the NDIS takes a lifetime approach to support, not just the needs of that person right now.

NDIS: National Disability Insurance Scheme

 

The NDIS is an independent Commonwealth Government Agency responsible for implementing the NDIS. The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIS) is an independent Commonwealth Government Statutory Agency, whose role it is to implement the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), which will support a better life for hundreds of thousands of Australians with a significant and permanent disability and their families and carers. The NDIS will mean peace of mind for every Australian - for anyone who has, or might acquire, a disability.

NDIS staff are situated across Australia & work with people seeking disability supports they can provide information, referrals, links to services and activities, individualised plans and funded supports to people over their lifetime. They will help link the dots between Service Providers and people seeking assistance.

The NDIS is partnering with the Commonwealth, State and Territory governments and well-known community organisations to deliver the NDIS in your local area.

WA NDIS clients

 

People already taking part in the WA NDIS will transfer to the nationally-delivered NDIS in a phased approach from April 2018 the transfer of people from the WA NDIS will conclude by December 2018.

NDIS Budgets

Each support category has many specific supports and services that are recognised within the NDIS payment system these are referred to as ‘line items’ and are not detailed in people’s plans.  This information is intended to assist people to engaging and negotiate with service providers.

There are many support ‘line items’ within each support category that are not detailed in people’s plans.

Individual budgets

Each person with funding under the NDIS will be given a budget that aligns with their individual plan and supports them in achieving their goals. These budgets are broken into three Support Purpose categories: core, capital and capacity building:

CORE – A support that enables a person to complete activities of daily living and enables them to work towards their goals and meet their objectives. People’s budgets are flexible across the four sub-categories: Assistance with daily living, except where a budget is allocated to Supported Independent Living (SIL), which is always Agency managed; Transport; Consumables; and Assistance with Social and Community Participation. A person may choose how to spend their core support funding, but cannot reallocate core support funding to other support purposes (i.e. capital or capacity building supports).

CAPITAL – An investment, such as assistive technologies - equipment, home or vehicle modifications, or for Specialist Disability Accommodation. People’s budgets for this support purpose are restricted to specific items identified in the participant’s plan.  Most items require quotes, which mean that service providers must negotiate a price with a person in accordance with the specifications usually developed by an assessing therapist. The funding for supports will, as needed, include assessment, delivery, set-up, adjustment and maintenance costs.

CAPACITY BUILDING -  A support that enables a person to build their independence and skills.   People’s budgets are allocated at a support category level and must be used to achieve the goals set out in the person’s plan. These supports include Support Coordination, Improved Living Arrangements, Increased Social & Community Participation, Finding and Keeping a Job, Improved Relationships, Improved Health & Wellbeing, Improved Learning, Improved Life Choices and Improved Daily Living Skills.
