What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an Australian government-funded scheme that helps people with significant disability live independently with a wide range of services. It can include supports like assistance with daily activities, disability accommodation, personal care, 24/7 support, clinical care, behaviour management plans, learning life skills, transport, mobility equipment and home maintenance.

The NDIS is all about giving people choice and control. As a participant, you work with your NDIS planner and NDIS providers to identify your goals, choose your supports, and ensure they are making a positive impact on your life. You can choose which companies or organisations provide you with your support services, and change providers at any time if you prefer.

Home Caring provides individualised NDIS disability care on the Sunshine Coast. Our local team provides services that help you make the most of your NDIS funding, and enjoy everyday life. For more information, please get in touch with our customer service team.

How do you access disability support on the Sunshine Coast?

Disability support on the Sunshine Coast is available through the National Disability Insurance Scheme, or the NDIS.

The NDIS is an Australian government initiative that provides support and assistance to people living with disability. It is designed to help individuals with permanent and significant disabilty by providing them with funding and resources, so they can access the supports they require.

Under the NDIS, eligible participants receive individualised funding packages based on an assessment of their needs and goals. This funding can be used to access a wide range of supports and services, including personal care, help with activities of daily living, transport, learning skills, social support, help finding meaningful work, nursing care, behaviour support, home modifications, supported accommodation, respite care and more.

The main goal of the NDIS is to empower people with disability to lead more independent and fulfilling lives. The scheme aims to give each participant greater control over the support they receive, allowing them to make choices based on their own goals. And it focuses on the person’s abilities and aspirations rather than on their impairments.

The NDIS is administered by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), which works closely with participants, their families, carers, and service providers to ensure the delivery of quality support services. The scheme operates on a lifetime basis, meaning that once a person is considered eligible and accepted into the scheme, they can receive support throughout their life.

How does the NDIS ensure the quality of services provided through the scheme?

When you are living with a disability, it’s important to receive support services you can trust. The NDIS has mechanisms in place to ensure services for participants are safe and of high quality.

  • All NDIS providers must be registered with the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission, which ensures they meet quality standards and comply with relevant laws and regulations.
  • Participants choose their own providers, decide on their supports and how often they are provided, and take part in the development of their NDIS support plans.
  • The NDIA regularly reviews support plans to make sure they stay relevant and effective in meeting the participant's needs (participants can also initiate a review of their plan).
  • The NDIS Commission's complaints process allows participants to make complaints about registered providers.
  • The NDIS Commission conducts regular monitoring and compliance activities to make sure providers are meeting their obligations. This includes site visits, audits, and investigations.

Who is eligible for the NDIS?

A person might be eligible to join the NDIS if they are:

  • younger than 65 when they make their application, or are a child younger than six living with a developmental delay
  • living in Australia and are an Australian citizen, a permanent resident, or have a Protected Special Category Visa
  • living with a disability caused by an impairment (an impairment is a significant change in your body’s function, structure, or in how you think and learn)
  • living with a disability that substantially reduces their functional capacity to do daily activities
  • likely to need NDIS disability services for their whole life

To work out if you might be eligible for NDIS funding, you can use the checklist tool that’s on NDIS government website. When you click on the checklist, you’ll be asked a few questions about your disability and the support you think you need. Based on your response, the checklist will be able to indicate whether you might be eligible for NDIS funding.

What is a NDIS provider?

An NDIS provider is an organisation or individual that offers services to participants of the NDIS. They play a valuable role in delivering a wide range of supports to people with disability, including:

  • Therapy and Allied Health services (e.g. physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and psychology)
  • Personal care, support with daily activities, personal hygiene, and mobility assistance
  • Disability accommodation and respite in a supported environment
  • Employment and training to help people with disability find meaningful work and gain vocational skills
  • Education support to help children with disability learn at school
  • Assistive technology, independent living aids, mobility equipment and other devices
  • Community participation and social activities in the community

To become an NDIS provider, organisations and individuals must go through a registration process with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), which manages the NDIS. This involves meeting certain requirements, including quality standards, qualifications, and compliance with NDIS policies and guidelines.

How do I apply for the NDIS?

Applying for the NDIS can feel overwhelming at first. Here are some steps to follow.

  • Understand the eligibility criteria – you can check if you might be eligible by using the checklist tool on the NDIS website.
  • Collect relevant documentation – if you think you might be eligible, put together all relevant documentation, such as medical reports, assessment results, and other relevant information that supports your case.
  • Consider your current needs and goals – also consider how NDIS support might help you achieve those goals. This will help you to develop a plan for the services you need.
  • Seek advice – a support coordinator or advocacy service can help you understand the NDIS process and how to prepare your application.
  • Communicate clearly – use clear and simple language in your application, and provide supporting evidence.
  • Attend NDIS meetings and appointments – you can invite someone to attend with you, for support.

A support worker is someone who helps people with disability do things they may find difficult to do on their own. They provide assistance and support with things like personal care, cooking, cleaning, going out, communicating, studying, working, or learning new skills. They are there to support and encourage people to be as independent as possible, and to make their lives easier and more enjoyable.

The NDIS provides funding for people with disability to have access to support workers for daily support and skills training.

What is a NDIS support coordinator?

Staying on top of your NDIS services can be tricky, especially if you have many needs, or are receiving lots of different supports. This is where an NDIS support coordinator can help.

An NDIS support coordinator is a person who helps NDIs participants get the support they need through their funding. They work closely with the person to understand their needs and goals, then helps them create a plan, and connects them with the right services.

A support coordinator also makes sure all the supports in a person’s plan work well together – much like a helpful guide who gives information, helps make decisions, and makes sure the person gets the support they need to be more independent and involved in their community.
