Your plan and your budget Auslan


As an NDIS participant you have choice and
control over how you manage your NDIS plan. In this video we’ll explain
how your NDIS plan is set-up and how to spend the
funds in your NDIS plan. Your plan may include: 1. Informal supports such
as family and friend. 2. Community supports for
events or social gatherings. 3. Mainstream supports
such as health appointments. 4. Reasonable and necessary funded supports
for supports you need to overcome barriers. Your NDIS Plan has three sections which are
called support budgets. These are: 1. Core 2. Capital, and 3. Capacity building Each section has
its own budget. I will explain further in more
details about each of them. The Core budget is designed to
support you in your day-to-day needs and includes supports
such as personal care. You have flexibility as to how much of your budget
you wish to use across the categories of daily activities, social, community and civic
participation and consumables. Your Capital Supports budget is
for purchasing one-off items such as equipment, technology or
for home or vehicle modifications. The Capacity building section of your
NDIS plan is about the skill building, training and learning you
need to achieve your goals. The funding in this section is allocated across
various categories that align to your goals. Remember, this is your plan and YOU have
control over the supports and services you receive. For more information, have a look on
the website or contact the NDIS.
