What Is NDIS Disability Support?

Nationally launched in 2016, An NDIS provider is an individual or organisation that delivers funded support services to a participant of the NDIS. They are an essential part of ensuring that people living with down syndrome and other disabilities are given all the resources, support and opportunities they need.

It is clear that the National Disability Scheme and various support services have many benefits to offer those who need support and assistance. This includes allowing more independence, assistance with daily activities, more community engagement opportunities as well as allowing more inclusion into society.

As a registered provider, we offer a number of support services available through an NDIS plan. Want to learn more? give us a call on 1300 881 884 to discuss the options best for you or your loved one’s needs.

An NDIS Provider Dedicated To You

Choosing Sapphire Support

At Sapphire Support, we are dedicated to helping individuals living with disability lead more independent and fulfilling lives.

While we all want to do what’s best for our loved ones, it can be hard when they’re not aware of how much help is available. Similarly, navigating the NDIS can be a daunting process.

That’s why at Sapphire Support we aim to make sure families and individuals living with disabilities have the information necessary so that everyone gets the care and support they need.

We are all unique, which is why our NDIS support services are also individualised to ensure your individual needs are met to the highest standard.

If you are looking for an NDIS provider, or are unsure about what will work for what is needed, get in touch today!

NDIS Provider FAQ’S

Why Was The NDIS Introduced?

Before the NDIS was introduced, disability services in Australia had been a lottery.

The funding you received depended on how, when and where you acquired your disability, as well as where you lived. Some people got enough funding, some people got none! Really, it was all just a bit unfair!

So, after they held an enquiry, the Federal Government agreed that people with a disability deserved a fairer system. And, more control!

And in July 2013, the NDIS was introduced.

What Is The NDIA?

The NDIA is the National Disability Insurance Agency.

It is a government agency and its role is to implement and manage the NDIS and make sure people with disability continue to get the support they need.

What happens to my current Mobility Allowance with the NDIS?

When you join the NDIS you will no longer be eligible for the Mobility Allowance.

Remember to tell your Planner or Local Area Coordinator (LAC) that you get the Mobility Allowance at your planning meeting. That way they can make sure it is included in your new NDIS plan.

Is transport covered under the NDIS?

If you are not able to use public transport because of your disability, you may be able to get NDIS funding to cover transport such as taxis.

If you already receive funding through a taxi subsidy scheme, the NDIA will also take this into account.

The NDIS will not provide funding to carers or family members to transport a person with a disability to everyday commitments.

The NDIS can also fund supports that help you build confidence and learn how to travel or use public transport independently.

For example, if your goal is to get your driver’s licence, the NDIS may be able to support you to achieve this.

Will the NDIS fund home modifications?

The NDIS will only fund reasonable and necessary home modifications.

This often means they will give you funding to help you use certain rooms in your home such as your bedroom, living area, meal area and bathroom.

Some examples of common modifications are:

Ramps
Lifting platforms
Stair climbers
Hand rails
Bathroom modifications such as removal of a bath or enlarging a shower
Widening doorways
Kitchen modifications
The NDIS also only funds home modifications to a person’s primary residence. If you are renting, the owner must provide a written agreement and you will also need to intend on living there into the future.

Before the NDIS will fund modifications, other possible solutions such as assistive technology will also be looked at.

For example, bathroom modifications won’t be funded if equipment, such as a shower stool, could make the bathroom safe and accessible for you.

Can my family be included in the NDIS process?

Yes! You can invite family members to be a part of your planning process and really every step of the way.

You might like your family members included a lot, or a little – the choice is yours.

What if I am a Sapphire Support customer but am not eligible for NDIS support?

If you are not eligible for the NDIS but are already receiving support from Sapphire Support, you will still be able to access the same level of supports you already have in place.

Governments have agreed that no one should be disadvantaged by transitioning to the NDIS.

How will my funding be managed?

There are 3 different ways you can manage your NDIS plan.

You don’t have to choose only one of these options. You can use a combination.

For example, you might self-manage some parts of your plan while the NDIA may look after other parts.

The three options are:

Your plan is managed by someone from the NDIA
Your plan is managed by a Plan Manager
You manage your NDIS plan
