The National Disability Insurance Scheme or NDIS is a new way to support Australian’s with a disability, and make sure everyone has the support they need to enjoy an ordinary life.

The NDIS helps people under 65 with a permanent and significant disability. Permanent means the disability will not go away.

Significant means the disability affects the things people need to do every day. People with an NDIS plan will get supports and services they need.

There are 3 types of support budgets that might be in your NDIS plan:

  • Core supports Budget
  • Capacity Building Supports Budget
  • Capital Supports Budget

Core Supports mean supports that help you with things:

  • you do every day
  • that help you with your disability
  • that help you meet your goals

Goals are things you want to happen eg. Get a job, make friends, become more independent. The Core Supports budget gives you the most control over your plan money.
