If you want to start your own research, the NDIS has produced new resources to step participants through how creating plans and obtaining funding works through the NDIS.

  • Guidelines:
    • Creating your plan – this explains what participants can expect as their plan is being created, and including how the planning conversation helps determine what supports will be necessary.
    • Reasonable and necessary supports – this explains how decisions are made on funding, and what constitutes ‘reasonable and necessary’ supports.
    • Your plan – this explains how a finished plan is implemented, and the formal and informal review processes to check how it is progressing.
  • Principles we follow to create your plan – this explains how the NDIS makes decisions about which supports it can fund through a plan.
  • Would we fund it – this gives clear examples of what would and would not be funded under the NDIS.

If you have questions about the NDIS, or need assistance resolving issues, advocacy services such as the ones below can help provide information and guidance.
