The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a government-funded program that provides support to people with disabilities and their families. NDIS funding is divided into three main categories: Core supports, Capacity building supports, and Capital supports.
Each of these funding categories has its own purpose and can be used for a variety of different supports. Understanding the NDIS funding categories is essential for making the most of your NDIS plan and ensuring that you are receiving the support you need to live your best life.
Core supports are the most flexible of the three funding categories and can be used for a wide range of supports, including:
Core supports are designed to help you live a more independent and fulfilling life. You can use your Core support funding to pay for the support that you need to achieve your goals, such as getting a job, going to school, or volunteering in your community.
Capacity-building supports are designed to help you develop skills and independence. This funding can be used for supports such as:
Capacity-building supports are an investment in your future. By using your Capacity building support funding, you can develop the skills and knowledge you need to live a more independent and fulfilling life.
Capital supports are for the purchase of assistive technology and home modifications. This funding can be used for things such as:
Capital supports are designed to help you live a more independent and accessible life. If you need assistive technology or home modifications to help you with your daily living activities, you may be able to use your Capital support funding to pay for them.
When you develop your NDIS plan, you will work with your planner to decide how to best allocate your funding to meet your needs and goals. Your planner can help you understand the different funding categories and how they can be used.
Once you have a plan in place, you can start using your funding to pay for the support that you need. You can manage your own funding (self-managed plan) or you can choose to have your funding managed by a registered NDIS plan manager. You also have a choice for your funding to be managed by NDIA, an agency funding.
