The NDIS provides funding to participants to purchase a range of supports aimed at increasing the participants independence, inclusion, and social and economic participation.
In the NDIS payment system, supports for participants fall into three categories. Within a plan, participant budgets are subject to NDIS rules in relation to these three categories. They are:
CoreA support that enables a participant to complete activities of daily living and enables them to work towards their goals and meet their objectives.
An investment, such as assistive technologies, equipment and home or vehicle modifications, or funding for capital costs (e.g. to pay for Specialist Disability Accommodation).
A support that enables a participant to build their independence and skills.
