Maximising Your NDIS Plan

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has brought a transformative change in the lives of Australians with disabilities.

The Housing Connection (THC), as a registered NDIS provider, is dedicated to guiding individuals in leveraging this scheme to its full potential, assuring they obtain the necessary and justified support for leading enriched lives.

How to Ensure You’re Getting the Support You Need

Decoding the NDIS

Introduced in Sydney’s North Shore region in July 2016, the NDIS provides annual funds to individuals with permanent disabilities. These funds are meant to cover the ‘necessary and reasonable’ support individuals require, allowing them to decide their support structure.

Strategies to Optimise Your NDIS Plan

Familiarise Yourself with Your Plan

To best use your NDIS funding, it’s critical to comprehend your plan thoroughly. Understanding what’s covered and what's not can ensure you utilise the support optimally.

Express Your Requirements

Transparency is crucial. By keeping your service providers updated about your needs and objectives, they can customise their services to align with your requirements.

Monitor Your Expenditure

Regularly tracking your budget ensures that your spending is on the right track. This vigilance will help you effectively use your funds.

Evaluate Your Life Holistically

Consider your needs across all life domains to extract the maximum value from your funding. This comprehensive approach guarantees that no area of your life is neglected.

Be Open to Reasonable Risks

The NDIS encourages participants to undertake reasonable risks while pursuing their goals. This approach promotes independence and enables individuals to lead fulfilling lives.
