The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is transforming the way healthcare is provided to people with disability across Australia. The NDIS is a Government funding model aimed at improving the lives of individuals who acquire a disability prior to the age of 65.
Funding under the NDIS is provided under three different support clusters:
Core Supports – The Core support budget is made up of four different categories. These include:
Daily activities – for example: assistance with self-care activities or household tasks.
Social, community and civic participation – for example: supports to enable you to engage in social or recreational activities.
Consumables – for example: prosthetic liners, lotions and gels.
Transport funding (if you are unable to use public transport because of your disability)
Capital Supports – Capital supports have two support categories:
Assistive Technology: for example prosthetic limbs, wheelchairs, shower stools, readers etc.
Home Modifications: ramps, handrails etc.
Capacity Building Supports – Capacity building funding includes categories such as:
Choice and control
Social Community and Civic Participation
Health and Well Being
Examples of Capacity Building Supports could include things like: gait training from a Physiotherapist, support from an Occupational Therapist to teach you how to use a one-handed mouse.
