If you live in an area where the NDIS is active,
your funding eligibility will be assessed by a Local Coordinator.

If you already receive disability services and support from a provider,
the Local Coordinator will advise when you will be able to access an NDIS plan.
You can continue to work with this provider, as long as they are registered to provide NDIS services.

STEP 2

You will be invited to develop your personal plan with the Local Coordinator. 
Your plan contains an outline of your goals, what you need to achieve, and the funding you will receive.

 

 

STEP 3

After your NDIS plan is created, you can choose how you manage the service provider/s who will deliver
your support and services. You have three options:


Self-managed:

You pay providers and manage any administrative processes yourself.

Provider-managed:
You choose a provider to manage all payments on your behalf and to help with service agreements,
hiring staff and preparing reports about NDIS funding.

A mix of self-managed and Local Coordinator-managed:
For example, you might want the Local Coordinator-manage your therapy funds, but you manage your consumables.

 

 

STEP 4

The Local Coordinator will review your plan with you every 12 months to make sure you are getting the support
and services you need. You are able to change service providers at any time without having to wait for your review.
