Empowering choice and control
LET US GUIDE YOU
We can help you understand the NDIS and get you the support you need
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) gives people with a disability direct access to funding, through the creation of an annual plan, to purchase the supports they need to live the life they want and to achieve their goals.
Our support Coordinators and Plan Managers are still supporting clients during the COVID-19 Pandemic. They will be finding safe ways to interact with clients, either over the phone or through email. For more information, please read our coronavirus (COVID-19) updates and our NDIS COVID-19 FAQs.
WE ARE HERE FOR YOU
As well as helping you prepare for your first National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Plan we can continue to help with the below.
At your planning meeting make sure you ask about Support Coordination as this will allow you to engage someone like us to be by your side every step of the way.
LET US SUPPORT YOU
SCIA’s Support Coordinators work with you to strengthen and enhance your capacity to co-ordinate supports set out in your NDIS plan. This can include working with you to self-direct and manage supports, as well as help you utilise your support budget to achieve your goals.
We can help you to:
YOU HAVE THE CONTROL
Plan management means that under the NDIS, you have financial control over the supports and services in your plan. You choose who you employ to receive these services, and how these services are delivered. SCIA’s Plan Managers help with the financial management of your NDIS plan.
If you choose to have NDIA manage your funding, you can only use services from NDIS registered providers. By self-managing or using a registered Plan Management provider, you can use any provider with a registered ABN, such as a local gardener or cleaner. Please contact us to learn more about Plan Management supports.
WE STAY INFORMED
We work closely with the NDIS to make sure our members are up to date
We work closely with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to ensure our members and clients are kept informed and empowered. Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a unique disability that has complexities not shared by other disabilities, which is why we are educating the NDIA where possible to improve their knowledge and understanding of the impact SCI has on your life.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
My pre-planning meeting with the team at SCIA helped me set out what direction my life is likely to take, and my pre-plan was drafted with those potential changes in mind.
