The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is how support is provided to Australians under 65 years living with disability, their families and carers. It provides funding directly to individuals, who then choose their providers, such as Directions.
Directions is accredited to deliver NDIS-funded supports and services to help people with their day to day needs, as well as build capacity to achieve their goals in life whether at home, in the community or at work. Our NDIS-funded supports include:
- Daily personal activities
- Participation in community, social, economic and daily life activities
- Therapeutic supports
- Help with household tasks
- Help with aids or equipment assessment, set up and training
NDIS funding is delivered according to support categories. You may not have all the support categories funded in your plan. Some people might have one or two support categories funded and others may have more.
The four NDIS core supports categories are:
- Assistance with daily life
- Accessing transport
- Accessing consumables
- Assistance with community participation
Funding is based on what is reasonable and necessary for your needs, in addition to the support provided by family, friends and other community and government services that you need to live your life and achieve your goals.
Directions works with you, your family and carers to ensure you receive the right support so you can live a full and enriched life.
