00:07 As an NDIS participant you have choice and control over how you manage your NDIS plan.
00:14 In this video we’ll explain how your NDIS plan is set-up
00:17 and how to spend the funds in your NDIS plan.
00:20 Your plan may include:
00:27 1. Informal supports such as family and friend.
00:30 2. Community supports for events or social gatherings.
00:38 3. Mainstream supports such as health appointments.
00:48 4. Reasonable and necessary funded supports for supports you need to overcome barriers.
01:01 Your NDIS Plan has three sections which are called support budgets. These are:
01:05 1. Core
01:07 2. Capital, and
01:09 3. Capacity building
01:13 Each section has its own budget.
01:15 I will explain further in more details about each of them.
01:18 The Core budget is designed to support you in your day-to-day
01:23 needs and includes supports such as personal care.
01:27 You have flexibility as to how much of your budget you wish to use across the categories of daily activities,
01:33 social, community and civic participation and consumables.
01:45 Your Capital Supports budget is for purchasing one-off items
01:52 such as equipment, technology or for home or vehicle modifications.
01:58 The Capacity building section of your NDIS plan is about the skill building,
02:10 training and learning you need to achieve your goals.
02:15 The funding in this section is allocated across various categories that align to your goals.
02:23 Remember, this is your plan and YOU have control over the supports and services you receive.
