What will my NDIS plan look like?
What will my NDIS plan look like?
1 October 2021

Every participant’s final NDIS plan will look different because it is created for you to provide the supports that you need to meet your goals. Once your plan is created, you will be sent a copy of it in the mail or you can view it through the NDIA’s myplace portal.

However, every plan that the NDIA creates will follow the same format which we explain in this article.

The first page of your NDIS plan will have all of your important personal information that identifies the plan as yours. This includes:

  • Your name
  • Your NDIS number
  • The details of your Local Area Coordinator (LAC) or your local NDIS office
  • Your plan start date and review date

Three parts of your NDIS plan

The are three parts in your NDIS plan, they are:

Part 1 – About me

This part of your NDIS plan includes a description of you and your daily life including the activities that you enjoy and the people who support you.

Part 2 – My Goals

This section will include the goals that you have agreed with your LAC or NDIA Planner. They are the goals that you will work towards within the period of this plan. You might have 2-3 goals or more.

Part 3 – My Supports

This part is more detailed and has information about the supports included in your plan, including:

  • The informal supports that you receive from family, friends and your community
  • Other services that you may receive from other government services (like health or education) or community groups
  • Your reasonable and necessary supports and the funding that you will receive over your plan period

NDIS budgets

The reasonable and necessary supports in your NDIS plan will be split into three different budget categories:

  • Core Supports
  • Capacity Building Supports
  • Capacity Building Supports

There are 15 further support categories that fit into one of the above main budget categories. Here’s what this looks like.

Core Supports

This budget is for the main things that you need in your every life. Your Core Supports budget is the most flexible of your three budget categories which means that you can use funds flexibility across the following four categories:

Support Category 1 – Assistance with Daily Living

You can use this budget for home and vehicle modifications as well as assistive technology. The two support categories under Capital Supports are:

Support Category 5 – Assistive Technology

Support Category 6 – Home Modifications and Supported Disability Accommodation
