Participant’s Guide to Effectively Using NDIS Core Supports

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) enables people with disabilities to have greater choice and control over their support and services. The funded supports that are
accessible through the NDIS empower the participants to achieve their goals and live their best lives. A participant’s NDIS plan may include funding for three types of support budgets. Among them, the NDIS Core Supports budget helps to access assistance with everyday activities that are directly related to the participant’s disability.

Support categories which come under Core Supports include Assistance with Daily Life, Consumables, Assistance with Social and Community Participation and Transport. The most fundamental daily tasks such as personal care, meal preparation, household chores like cleaning, continence support and community participation are the focus of NDIS Core Supports. Participants can make use of their Core Supports to increase their independence and reduce their reliance on informal support from friends and family. Core Supports also free up time for the participants to focus more on their bigger goals like education and employment. Since the Core Supports budget is flexible, you can move your funding across the four support categories based on your individual disability support needs. For example, as the participant slowly becomes capable of managing their daily tasks, they can reduce the amount spent on Assistance with daily living and utilize the funding for more community participation activities.
