How does the NDIS work?

The NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) is an Australian government initiative designed to support people living with a significant and permanent disability. If you qualify as a NDIS participant, the government provides you with funding to access a range of support services based on your individual needs, such as life skills training, personal care, physical assistance, mobility equipment, help at home, behaviour management support or clinical care. These supports help you live a more independent life in your local community. The NDIS is all about offering people with disability choice and control over their lives. This person-centred approach means that you get to choose the types of support services that you need, and who provides them to you. You then create a service agreement with your chosen NDIS provider, and work with them to create an individualised plan that determines how your supports will help you meet your needs and work towards your goals. Looking for NDIS service providers in Melbourne’s suburbs? Home Caring has locally based teams of professional support workers in suburbs across Melbourne, offering a wide range of NDIS supports tailored to individual needs. To learn more, please get in touch with our disability care experts for a free consultation.

What makes you eligible for NDIS funding?

Eligibility for NDIS funding is based on a person's disability, and how it impacts their ability to carry out everyday tasks and participate in community life. To be eligible for NDIS funding, a person must:
  • be an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or hold a Protected Special Category Visa
  • be younger than 65 years old at the time of their application
  • have a permanent and significant disability or impairment that substantially affects their ability to undertake everyday activities
  • Need support from the NDIS to reduce the impact of their disability and enable them to achieve their goals

To determine whether a person is eligible for funding, NDIS assessors use a range of information, including medical reports, functional assessments from healthcare professionals, and information from other service providers. If a person is found to be eligible for NDIS funding, they will meet with a NDIS planner or Local Area Coordinator to work out a plan that identifies their goals, and the supports they need to achieve those goals.

What’s the process of applying for NDIS funding in Australia?

Applying for funding from the NDIS can be an overwhelming task, so it’s a good idea to get help from your Local Area Coordinator or a NDIS planner, or advocacy organisation. The team at Home Caring can also provide guidance and assistance, please feel free to give us a call for a free consultation. By getting help, you can make the NDIS application process go smoother with less stress, giving you more time and energy to focus on working towards your goals.

To start your NDIS application, you’ll need to provide details on your disability, what your current support needs are, and goals you have for the future. This could include information documents such as medical reports and assessments from your health professionals. You must then submit your application to the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA). You can do this by filling out a form online, by talking to someone on the phone, or by filling out a paper form.

Once your eligibility has been assessed and you are confirmed as eligible for NDIS funding, you will work with a planner to develop an individualised plan that details the types of support and services you need to achieve your goals and live a more independent life. Supports provided by the NDIS is designed to be flexible and based on your unique needs, giving you more choice and control over your plan.

The next step is looking for NDIS registered providers in Melbourne. There are many options available, and each provider offers different supports and approaches to care. Here are some ways you can look for a provider who meets your needs:

  • Use the online NDIS provider tool – the NDIS government website has an easy-to-use online tool that helps you to find registered providers located in your region. To search, all you have to do is enter your postcode, choose the types of NDIS approved providers in Melbourne you’re looking for, and the tool generates a list of providers according to your criteria. You can then contact these providers directly to ask them about their services and fees.
  • Chat to your friends and family members – it’s always a good idea to ask for recommendations from people who are also receiving disability support services in your area. This might include friends, family members, or support groups local to you. Disability advocacy organisations or local community groups can also put you in the right direction, and connect you with providers who are located close to you.
  • Speak to your Local Area Coordinator – your LAC is usually your first point of contact when you become a NDIS participant. They work with you to help you understand the NDIS, help you develop a plan that identifies your goals, and assist you with any necessary paperwork. Your LAC can also help you connect with services providers and community organisations that can provide you with support in your local area.
