Bundaleer is proud to be a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Partner supporting people with a disability and their families by delivering NDIS services across the Mid-North Coast.

A lifetime approach, investing in people with disability

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an initiative of the Australian Government to provide support for Australians with significant disability, their families and carers.

The NDIS supports people with disability to build skills and capability so they can participate in the community and live an ordinary life.

As an insurance scheme, the NDIS takes a lifetime approach, investing in people with disability early to improve their outcomes later in life.

NDIS

 It can take 6-12 months for an eligible person to enter the NDIS once it starts in your area.

5 Easy Steps to the NDIS

  1. Call the NDIA on 1800 800 110 (8am – 11pm) to confirm your eligibility.
  2. Complete your Access Request form with as much detail and evidence as possible. Wait for further contact from the NDIA to confirm you have been successful and are now an official ‘participant’ in the scheme.
  3. Contact the Bundaleer team on (02) 6585 2811 to organise a pre-planning session to prepare for your planning meeting with the NDIA. (Optional)
  4. Attend a planning meeting with your NDIA Local Area Coordinator to discuss your needs, goals and aspirations. Following this meeting, you will need to wait for your plan to be approved.
  5. Attend a Plan Implementation meeting with your NDIA Local Area Coordinator to discuss your approved plan and start choosing where to purchase your supports.

Eligibility

Can I access the NDIS? 

The NDIS supports people with disability to build skills and capability so they can participate in the community and employment.

You can access the NDIS if you:

  • are under 65 when you make your application.
  • are an Australian Citizen or resident or permanent visa holder, and
  • meet the disability or early intervention requirements.

If you are aged 65 years and over you will not be eligible for the NDIS, but in most cases, you will receive support through the Commonwealth Aged Care system.

Early intervention

Early intervention helps people with a disability that is likely to be with them for life, but could be improved through additional support. The focus of early intervention is on people getting services and supports now so they require fewer services and supports in the future enabling them to live a more independent life.

Early intervention can also help children under 6 years old with developmental delay.

More information about early intervention is available on the NDIS website.

How can I find out if I am eligible for the NDIS?

A guide to the access requirements for the NDIS can be found on the NDIS website or you can phone the NDIA directly on 1800 800 110 to ask about eligibility.

Costs

Prices for supports included in participant plans are developed and published by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).

NDIA will update prices on at least an annual basis, effective 1 July each year, taking into account market trends, changes in costs and wage rates. Changes to prices will be published on this website. Each updated price list will include the date it was published to help providers ensure that they are using the most up-to-date version.

How will the NDIS help me?

The NDIS is a new way for people with disability to get the care and support they need to live a better life.

You may have a disability if you can’t do everyday things without some help including:

  • looking after yourself
  • hanging out with friends
  • looking after the house
  • having difficulty seeing, hearing, walking or talking
  • having trouble remembering things or solving problems.

The NDIS will provide funding for reasonable and necessary support, services and equipment to help participants live an ordinary life.

While there are guidelines as to what can be funded through the scheme, as a general rule the supports and services should help you to:

  • achieve your goals
  • do things on your own and become independent
  • develop skills for day to day living
  • take part in the community
  • work and earn money.

Here are some examples of how an NDIS program could help you:

  • Getting out and about – moving around safely in your home or local community, equipment and advice for your home.
  • Communication and keeping in touch – product recommendations and training to use devices to assist with reading and writing. We can also support with general communication technology like smart phones and tablets.
  • Independence at home – strategies, training, tips and equipment to organise your home and assist you to live independently.
  • Staying connected in your community – services and activities to help you connect with your local community and support to help you participate in recreational, cultural and sporting activities.
  • Education and learning – services and equipment to help you to learn new skills throughout your life including vocational education, training in how to use adaptive technologies and how to access relevant features on your personal devices.
  • Working and contributing to your community – support to help you find meaningful employment and fully participate in the community.

NDIS categories we support at Bundaleer include:

  • Assistance with Daily Life
  • Assistance with Social and Community participation, and
  • Coordination of supports

Categories

The NDIS provides funding to participants to purchase a range of supports aimed at increasing their independence, inclusion, as well as social and economic participation. This funding model is designed to be flexible and to allow service innovation. Importantly, the supports delivered will be chosen, and paid for, by individual participants.

In the NDIS payment system, supports for participants fall into three Support Purpose categories being Core, Capital and Capacity Building.

  • Core
    A support that enables a participant to complete activities of Daily Living and enables them to work towards their goals and meet their objectives.

  • Capital
    An investment, such as assistive technologies, equipment and home or vehicle modifications as well as funding for capital costs (e.g. to pay for Specialist Disability Accommodation).

  • Capacity Building
    A support that enables a participant to build their independence and skills.

The NDIS Outcomes Framework has been developed to measure goal attainment for individual participants and overall performance of the Scheme. There are 8 Outcome Domains (‘Domains’) in the framework. It is intended that these Domains will help participants think about goals in different life areas and assist planners to explore where supports in these areas already exist, and where further supports are required.

  1. Daily Living
  2. Home
  3. Health and Well-being
  4. Lifelong Learning
  5. Work
  6. Social and Community Participation
  7. Relationships
  8. Choice and Control

NDIS service providers should be aware that all supports and services for Scheme participants should contribute to the achievement of their individual goals.

Support Categories

This NDIA Price Guide is arranged into 15 categories that align to the purpose of the funded supports and the NDIA Outcomes Framework – detailed above.
