Understanding your NDIS plan

Do you sometimes struggle to understand what is in your NDIS plan and what supports you can access? This page explains the various support categories, with handy examples and tips how to use your funding.  

If you have any questions about your NDIS plan, contact our friendly team any time. We're here to help. 

What are the types of support in an NDIS plan?

The NDIS offers three different funding types: Core, Capital and Capacity Building. Under these funding types, supports are organised into what the NDIS calls Support Categories. Some of them have pretty confusing names, so here we explain which supports can be funded in each category and provide handy examples:


Core supports

Core supports are basic things you need to live your daily life.



Capital supports

This funding type is for more significant, 'one off' items that support you in your daily life.



Capacity-building supports

This type of funding supports you in building skills to become more independent.


How can I get a specific support funded?

In these articles we explain how the NDIS can fund specific products and services. We give handy insights and tips, so you can make the most out of your NDIS funding! Any questions? Just contact our friendly team!

My plan is not correct. What do I do?

Do you think that your NDIS plan does not accurately outline what you discussed in your planning meeting? Or do you think it’s not right for you in some way?

You can ask for a review within 90 days of receiving your plan. You can find out how to do this here.
