National Disability Insurance Scheme
A new way forward
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is designed to provide those in our community with a significant and permanent disability, their families and carers with more choice and control about how support and assistance are delivered to prepare the way for better lives. There are two types of funded support you can receive to help you manage your NDIS plan:
- Support Coordination – organising the services you require in your plan.
- Plan Management – how you will manage your plan’s finances.
Funding for Support Coordination and Plan Management is paid by the NDIS on top of your NDIS Plan, however, you must ask for it at your NDIS planning meeting.
Our Support Coordinators connect you with your local community, the material supports and services needed to bring your plan to life. Our role is to empower you and those around you by working with you so that your unique goals can be realised by accessing the best supports and services available in your region.
Parent to Parent (P2P) provides support such as processing claims through the NDIS and paying your invoices. We’ll organise paperwork and provide you with access to up to date expenditure reports to check at any time.
If you have chosen to self-direct, you may still be able to access P2P’s services as you learn the ropes.
