Breaking Down Your NDIS Plan
28 July, 2021
When first receiving an NDIS plan, there are many different sections which contain important information detailing your supports, personal information, and funding. Focus Care has broken down all the different parts of your NDIS plan, and what they mean for you.
How your NDIS Plan is structured
Your NDIS plan can be divided into three key sections. These are:
My Profile: personal details
My Goals: dependent on support needs
Funded Supports: divided into three categories: core, capital & capacity building
The My Profile section of your NDIS plan includes personal details about yourself. It also involves your representative / advocate details if applicable. This also includes an About Me section, which gives an overview of circumstances, aspirations, hobbies, and interests. You can also describe your daily or weekly routine here.
As a participant, you may give copies of your plan to other relevant people, such as your LAC or NDIA planner, making your NDIS experience more personable. Any of your personal details in the ‘My Profile’ section can be changed at any Plan Review throughout the course of the plan.
The My Goals section of your NDIS plan is broken down into short, medium and long-term goals. All of this is dependent on your support needs. Your goals are further broken down into two subheadings:
How I will achieve this goal
How I will be supported
During a Plan Review, the progress on your goals will be assessed with your LAC and any other relevant persons. You can also add new goals, or modify certain goals. Most people have 5-6 goals on their NDIS plan. Depending on their support needs, they may have more or less.
Your funded supports are dependent on a number of different factors. Whether it is your first NDIS plan from your Access Request Form, or you’re at a Plan Review meeting, your supports will change depending on your needs.
There are three categories of support that you can receive in your NDIS funding. These are known as core, capital and capacity building supports.
Assistance with daily life (cleaning, meal prep, personal care)
Capacity Building Supports
Psychology / counselling
