NDIS Core Supports What are They?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides support to people with a disability as well as their family or carers. The first thing that needs to be done when starting is that a planning meeting will need to be organised with yourself, your family, and a support person. From there, an NDIS plan will be created with the support of either an early childhood partner, local area coordinator (LAC), or a support coordinator. This plan will contain many things such as what is important to you, the role that your family plays in your care, your day to day life and any therapy goals that you may have.

There are three types of support budgets that may be funded as part of your NDIS plan

  1. Core Supports
  2. Capacity Building Supports
  3. Capital Supports

Core supports is provided as one lump sum payment that helps you with everyday activities and your current disability-related needs. This part of your budget is the most flexible part of your NDIS plan and can be put towards any one of the following four categories.

  • Assistance with daily activities such as cleaning, yard maintenance, showering, toileting, mobility and attending medical appointments. These supports enable greater independence with activities of daily living (ADLs) and may be provided in a range of settings. Some of these settings include in the client’s home, in the community and possibly residential aged care facilities.
  • Everyday items that you may need to improve your daily life such as continence pads, an iPad to access telehealth appointments or mobility equipment such as a 4 wheeled walker or a mobility scooter if your lack of mobility is making it difficult to participate in the community
  • Assistance with social and community participation which is primarily in the form of a support worker who can assist you with social outings and community visits
  • Transport which can be used to help you travel to work or other places that will help you pursue the goals outlined in your NDIS plan

Depending on your eligibility, these services can be offered as part of a Home Care package or they can be privately funded. At Home Care Assistance, we will work with you to determine what services will be best suited to your needs and if you are eligible for government funding.
