Each category serves a specific purpose and can be utilised to access various services and supports. Understanding these categories will help you allocate your funds appropriately.
  • Assess Your Support Needs:
    Conduct a thorough assessment of your support requirements for daily life activities. Consider areas such as personal care, household tasks, community participation, transport, and therapy. Understanding your specific needs will help determine the level and type of support you require.

    Developing a comprehensive support plan is crucial to effectively utilise your NDIS budget. Work closely with your support coordinator and other professionals to identify your goals, outline the necessary supports, and establish a budget that aligns with your objectives.

Seeking guidance from support coordinators, disability service providers, or advocacy organisations can provide valuable insights and assistance throughout the process.
