NDIS and You
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing individualised support for people with disability, their families and carers.
The NDIS provides eligible people (those under 65 who have a permanent and significant disability) with a flexible, holistic approach in providing the support needed to pursue an individuals goals, aspirations and participate in daily life.
To find out more about how to apply for the NDIS, eligibility and creating a plan, access the link here: https://www.ndis.gov.au/understanding/how-ndis-works
If you are in the process of appling for NDIS funding and have any questions regarding employment options, we are happy to help. Also see http://www.ndis.gov.au/participants/funding-keeping-and-changeing-jobs/lets-talk-about-work
The ‘Let’s talk about work’ booklet helps you get ready for your conversation about work. You can record key information about your work capacity, strengths, barriers and challenges.
If you have an NDIS plan, Merriwa can provide “Supports in Employment’ through your CORE funding – Assistance with Social, Economic and Community participation. We can charge the full TTP pricing as published by NDIS. For more information please refer to the NDIS price guide here. https://www.ndis.gov.au/providers/price-guides-and-pricing
