Can I use NDIS funding to pay for my service?

Yes, subject to certain conditions.

We are a registered NDIS provider for a range of NDIS support items and services that may apply to the costs associated with your selected eligible service.

The NDIS does not fund “holidays” but may fund reasonable and necessary support (away from home) that helps you achieve your NDIS goals and provide opportunities to improve social and personal outcomes.

Supports funded by the NDIS need to:

  • be related to the participant’s disability;
  • not include day-to-day living costs not related to a participant’s
  • disability support needs;
  • represent value for money; and
  • be likely to be effective and beneficial to the participant.

Information for NDIS participants

Our personalised services and the unique preferences of each participant mean there is no “one size fits all” approach to working out if, and to what extent, you can utilise your NDIS funding to access our services.
To make it easier we have a range of FAQ sheets and tools that can help guide you through your purchase process and answer some of the more common questions that apply to NDIS participants.

How much of my service will NDIS pay for?

The amount of funding you can allocate to your service will depend on which service interests you and your NDIS goals, plan and budget. While every  individual goal, plan and budget is unique the most common arrangements for multiday services are where:

NDIS funds support only and you co-pay all other costs This applies if you have community participation and core support funding available to fund the SUPPORT ONLY costs of your service. The balance of all other daily costs (meals, accommodation, transport, activities) are paid as co-payment privately by the participant.

OR

NDIS Funds support, accommodation & meals and you co-pay all other costs This applies if you have Short-term Accommodation (STA) funding available in your core budget to take a break from home or achieve other personal goals. Most daily costs are NDIS funded with copayments for additional transport, activities, tickets, fares.

Understanding the Pricing Table

Refer to the pricing table for your preferred service to estimate your funded and co-payment costs depending on which type of funding you aim to use to achieve your goals.  You may eligible to partially or fully fund most of your holiday costs.

The item prices are shown (gst free) in columns for each shared support package. Using your preferred support package (1:4, 1:2 or 1:1) you can identify appropriate support items, eligible for funding if your plan budget allows it. 

You can contact to the team anytime for a personalised item quote that suits your budget and support goals.
