Do you provide support workers, or information on how to find them?

Parent to Parent does not offer direct support services (support workers). However, we do offer referrals to local service providers in your area. Contact Karen at resource@p2pqld.org.au or by phoning 1800 777 723.

I think I need an early review, what do I do and can you help?

Review requests need to go directly to the NDIA. It is important to start this process as early as possible. Parent to Parent can help provide some supporting documentation such as funding statements or copies of invoices. If you need any information, you can contact the team at ndisfinance@p2pqld.org.au or check out our information sheet about reviews here.

I have no funding left in my plan, what can I do?

We strongly encourage all families to keep an eye on their spending using their funding statements to prevent running out of money early. But if this happens, please contact your NDIA LAC/Planner to discuss your options. If you have a Support Coordinator, they may also be able to help you. You may need an early review. You may need to reschedule with your support workers or therapists until your plan is changed. Once your current NDIS plan has come to the end - We can send invoices to the NDIA provider payments team - they may choose to add additional funds to cover the support, but this is not guaranteed.

My plan is ending, do I need to do anything for P2P to continue paying my invoices?

Your NDIS plan may be automatically extended or replaced with a new, reviewed plan. When either happens we will receive a notification from the NDIS about the status of your plan and we will let you know the next steps. Usually, if your plan is extended, we will continue to process your invoices as normal. If you have a new plan, we will ask you to send us a copy of the new plan. Please check your emails regularly to ensure you don’t miss an update from us.
