For some of you with children aged 13 years and under there were signiﬁcant changes as at 1st July 2014 with stage two of the Individualised Funding roll out.
For those who are still grappling with what this all means; essentially each person in this age group will have an individualised plan that is tailored to their goals, personal circumstances and disability support needs.
If you need assistance to work through this new process please don’t hesitate to contact us and we will make every effort to connect you with the best people at the National Disability Insurance Agency
The types of supports that the National Disability Insurance Scheme may fund include:
- personal care to support an individual in their home or the community
- supports to assist people with disability to enjoy social and community interaction without relying solely on you
- supports that maintain a carer’s health and well being will be considered. This support may include participation in a support group or a special interest network.
In deciding whether to fund or provide a support, the National Disability Insurance Agency will take account of what it is reasonable to expect families, carers, informal networks and the community to provide.
- assistance with tasks of daily living including to help improve a person’s ability to do things
- supported employment services and help for people to move to work programs that prepare people with disability in work, and
- training related to the caring role that may enhance your ability to provide care.
