The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an Australian government program that supports individuals with permanent and significant disabilities. Participants receive individualised plans detailing their goals and allocated funding to purchase necessary services, with an emphasis on enhancing their ability to participate in daily activities and community life as well as engaging in our NDIS counselling service.
NDIS plan funding is broken into three support categories – Core Supports, Capacity Building Supports and Capital Supports.
Core supports are the main support category which can help you with everyday activities, and support access to and participation opportunities within your community. Funding in your core supports category is flexible.
Capital supports focus on assistive technology and home modifications. Funding in this support category is not flexible and funds must be used for their intended purpose.
Capacity Building Supports are designed to help build skills and independence in your daily life, and to help you pursue your goals. Capacity building support budgets are somewhat flexible. Participants can choose how to use their capacity building funding within capacity building subcategories but cannot use this money to pay for supports in other capacity building subcategories.
*Any service listed as a ‘stated support’ in your NDIS plan is not flexible. If the item is listed as a ‘stated support’, it means the funding must be used for its intended purpose.
At The Catharsis Society, we are proud to offer specialised NDIS Counselling services under the Improved Daily Living (IDL) category to both Self-Managed and Plan-Managed Participants.
Assistance with Social and Community Participation is also available through participants Capacity Building Supports. Our Level 1 and Level 2 Support workers are professionally trained and offer a professional service.
