The next step in planning for the NDIS is to consider what supports you currently have in place and what supports you are going to need in the future.
There are three NDIS supports budgets:
These are the supports you require in your day to day needs, they may include personal care, help getting dressed, bathed etc.
This includes purchasing one off items such as equipment, maybe a wheelchair or mobility aide. Or it may include home or vehicle modifications.
This includes learning and education, building your skills that align to your goals.
Take a look at this video for some more information about planning for the NDIS.
Consider the level and frequency of support that you require in your day to day living.
This may also help you to determine the level of funding that you will require to maintain the same level of support you currently receive or to access additional support under the NDIS.
See the attached NDIS Support Catalogue and Price Guide to give you an estimate of costs for each service.
You may also wish to register online for MyGov, if you haven’t already done so, and link your account to the NDIS Portal.
You will have the opportunity to revise your plan overtime. You will have control over the supports you require along with the flexibility to manage your budget to purchase supports you choose to.
