NDIS Funded Support
So, you have been approved for Assistance with social and community participation, or Increased Social and Community Participation, or Improved Daily Living Skills or Improved Relationships in your NDIS plan and you looking for support to participate in your favourite social or recreational activities, attend events or engage in your community, and achieve your personal goals. Together we can find activities and events of interest, develop a personal program, that is focussed on you, and will assist you to achieve your goals.
Your NDIS plan identifies your support category which contains a number of services that you can choose from to achieve your goals. You can use your NDIS budget for any of the services within that support category, but you cannot use the budget allocated to other support category. If you are allocated funding for a specific support (rather than a category), then this funding must be used for that specific service only.

Creating Your Plan With NDIS: Putting you in the "Driver's Seat"
Under the NDIS you have choice, control to make the decisions on how you would like your plan to be implemented. This includes what supports you receive, when you want to receive them, where you want to receive them, and what provider you would like to provide them.
When you meet with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) Planner you will discuss and identify your goals, and the supports you would like to have included in your plan.
Your plan will then identify the relevant support category to assist you to achieve your goals. These can be:

Capital Supports and Capacity Building Supports

Choosing Your Support
Once you have received your plan, it is up to you to find a provider to implement your plan. You can choose to have one provider or a variety of providers for specific roles. Each provider will work with you to develop a service plan for the service you want them to provide you.
Ways to manage your funding
There are three options to manage your NDIS funding - self-managed, plan-managed and NDIA-managed.
You can also choose a combination of the three options. For example you may choose to self-manage one part of your plan to start with and have the rest managed by the NDIA.
Your ECEI Coordinator, LAC or NDIA planner will ask you how you would like to manage your NDIS funding during your planning meeting. They will help you choose the best way to manage your funds for your needs and circumstances.
No matter how your funds are managed, you still have choice and control to ensure your services are working for you and fit in your budget. Even if your funding is managed by the NDIA or a Plan Manager, you should regularly check the myplace portal and your funding to make sure your budgets are on track.
