NDIS is a scheme that is designed to provide choice of support to all eligible Australians under the age of 65, born with or acquired a permanent and significant disability, their families and carers. The NDIS is designed to empower and help people to get the support they need .e.g.
Achieve individual goals
The NDIS takes a flexible, whole-of-life approach to work with participants, their families, and carers, to develop individualised plans. The NDIS provides participants with more choice and control over how, when and where their supports are provided. It also provides certainty that they will receive the support they need over their lifetime.
The NDIS works to connect participants with community and mainstream supports. The NDIS also funds the additional reasonable and necessary supports to help participants pursue their goals and aspirations, and participate in daily life.
Helping people to build their social and economic participation requires the NDIS to work closely with community organisations to identify opportunities for people with disability.
The NDIA will let you know their decision within 21 days of receiving your application and all supporting evidence. If your application is successful a Local Area Coordinator will contact you to arrange a planning meeting.
Your Planning Meeting can be either face to face in a location convenient to you, or over the phone with a NDIS Planner or a Local Area Coordinator. During this meeting, you’ll be asked about your goals and your day to day life. You can bring along a family member, friend or advocate to support you in your planning meeting if you desire. In your meeting, you’ll also be asked to choose a Plan Management Option, which determines who will manage your NDIS Plan and funding.
It’s important that you prepare for your planning meeting. Planning meeting checklist is available here.
EC Care can offer support during this entire process so if you’re feeling overwhelmed.
You will be assessed as part of your transition to NDIS. Your NDIS plan will be formally reviewed after 12 months, unless if you or someone else identifies that your needs are changing or have changed. The reassessment period is cut short to allow for an updated plan that suits your needs.
