How to get Supported Independent Living Funding
What is NDIS?
NDIS is the National Disability Scheme. This is a way to provide for people under the age of 65 who have a permanent and significant disability which impacts their ability to take part in a lifestyle with everyday activities. The NDIS provides funding for supports and services which assists people with a disability and their families in achieving being able to live as independently as possible and attaining their goals. NDIS participants have choice and control over which providers they want to receive help from, as well as how and when services are received
Participants have different requirements and goals. The NDIS provides individual plans to each participant, and choice and control over which services they receive and from where. NDIS plans will be reviewed on a regular basis, typically every year, to assess whether goals are being achieved and needs are being met. This will determine the funding amounts for supports in the next plan.
Funding amounts are measured on what is practical and essential for participants to achieve their goals. Whether they have help from other existing bodies such as friends, family, and other government supports will also be taken into consideration. With this in mind, NDIS funding is divided up into separate budgets, and the approved amounts in each will differ on an individual participant basis.
