The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an Australian government initiative that aims to provide support and services to individuals with disabilities. It’s designed to enhance the quality of life for people with disabilities by offering financial assistance and access to a range of services.

In this blog post, we’ll explore how NDIS support works and the various types of services that it covers, shedding light on what’s included in these services.

How NDIS Support Works

Before we dive into the specifics of NDIS supports, it’s essential to understand how the scheme operates.

NDIS is an insurance-based system that provides funding to individuals with disabilities to help them achieve their goals, participate in their communities, and lead more independent lives.

Participants work with NDIS planners to develop a tailored plan that outlines their goals and needs. The funding provided is then used to access various types of support and services.

The NDIS support can cover a wide range of services and activities that aim to improve the participant’s independence, social inclusion, and overall quality of life. These services can be broadly categorised into the following areas:

Core Supports

Core supports are designed to assist participants with their everyday activities and routines. They encompass essential services such as personal care, domestic assistance, and transportation. These services ensure that individuals with disabilities can go about their daily lives with confidence and independence.

Capacity Building Supports

Capacity building supports focus on developing the participant’s skills and capabilities. These services can include training, therapy, and education. The aim is to enhance the participant’s ability to navigate their life, increase their employment prospects, and engage with their community.

Capital Supports

Capital supports cover the big-ticket items such as assistive technology, home modifications, and vehicle modifications. These services are essential for improving the participant’s overall quality of life and increasing their independence.

Types of Services Covered by NDIS

The NDIS covers a wide range of services and supports designed to address the unique needs of each participant. These services can be grouped into several key categories:

  1. Assistance with Daily Life: This includes personal care, domestic assistance, and community access services.
  2. Transport: NDIS can provide funding for transport to and from appointments, education, or employment.
  3. Consumables: NDIS can cover the cost of essential items such as continence aids, hearing aids, and mobility equipment.
  4. Social and Community Participation: This covers support to help participants engage in social and recreational activities, community events, and workshops.
  5. Assistive Technology: NDIS can provide funding for assistive technology such as wheelchairs, communication devices, and home modifications.
  6. Home Modifications: NDIS can cover the cost of modifications to a participant’s home to improve accessibility and independence.
  7. Coordination of Supports: This service assists participants in managing their NDIS plan and finding and connecting with other services.
  8. Improved Living Arrangements: NDIS can provide funding for supported independent living, specialised disability accommodation, and home-based care.
  9. Increased Social and Community Participation: This covers support to help participants engage with their community, build social skills, and access employment opportunities.
  10. Finding and Keeping a Job: NDIS can provide assistance with job training, employment support, and modifications to the workplace.
  11. Improved Relationships: This includes counselling, therapy, and other supports to help participants maintain and build relationships with family, friends, and carers.
  12. Improved Health and Wellbeing: This can include funding for health services, exercise programmes, and therapies to improve overall health and well-being.
  13. Improved Learning: NDIS can cover the cost of education and training to improve skills and knowledge.
  14. Improved Life Choices: This covers services and supports to help participants achieve their goals, develop life skills, and become more independent.
  15. Improved Daily Living​: This includes support to help participants manage their daily activities and routines, such as meal preparation, household tasks, and personal care.

A Comprehensive List of Supports Not Funded Under NDIS

To give you a clearer picture, here’s a comprehensive list of the supports that NDIS can deliver:

  • Supports not related to the individual’s disability
  • Supports that are delivered under different funding through NDIS
  • Day-to-day costs that are not related to a participant’s support needs
  • Supports that cause harm to the participant or pose a risk to others
  • Supports that can be appropriately or effectively delivered by another system such as health or education.

Understanding what NDIS can and cannot fund is crucial in developing a comprehensive support plan
