National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

Participant5

We provide the following NDIS supports:

Assistance with travel/transport

We can assist you with travel/transport arrangements outside of your home to achieve your goals.

NDIS funding may be accessed to pay a provider to transport you to an activity if you can’t use public transport without substantial difficulty due to your disability. For example, we can provide assistance with travel to and from appointments with a GP or a physiotherapist, or to and from your workplace.

Assistance in managing life stages, transitions and supports / coordination of supports

Your Support Coordinator will work with you to ensure the right types of supports are in place to increase your capacity to achieve your goals, maintain relationships, access service providers, live more independently, increase your skills, and be included in your community or in employment.

This may include helping you to:

  • Understand your plan and what supports and services you can pay for with your NDIS funding
