What NDIS support services can I access?
The NDIS will fund ‘reasonable and necessary’ support, services and equipment.
These should assist a person to:
- Do things independently
- Participate in the community
- Access educational opportunities
- Get a job and earn a wage
- Achieve goals
- Develop skills for daily living
What does ‘reasonable and necessary’ support mean?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme Act states reasonable and necessary support must:
- Be related to the participant’s disability
- Not include day-to-day living costs that are not related to a participant’s disability support needs such as: rent, board, food or phone and electricity bills. (These must be paid for from a person’s usual source of income such as a wage or pension)
- Represent value for money
- Be likely to be effective and beneficial to the participant
- Take into account informal supports given to the participant by family, carers, networks and the community.
Other areas not funded by the NDIS are education, health and transport.
