What can be funded?
The types of supports that the NDIS may fund for participants may include:
• daily personal activities
• transport to enable participation in community, social, economic and daily life activities
• workplace help to allow a participant to successfully get or keep employment in the open or supported labour market
• therapeutic supports including behaviour support
• help with household tasks to allow the participant to maintain their home environment
• help to a participant by skilled personnel in aids or equipment assessment, set up and training
• home modification design and installation
• mobility equipment, and
• vehicle modifications.
What will not be funded?
The NDIS Act and the rules made under the NDIS Act tell us which supports will not be funded by the
NDIS. A support will not be funded if it:
• is not related to the participant’s disability
• duplicates other supports already funded by a different mechanism from the NDIS, such as Medicare or Departments of Education
• relates to day-to-day living costs that are not related to a participant’s support needs, or
• is likely to cause harm to the participant or pose a risk to others, of how the supports are given and which service providers you use.
