NDIS SUPPORT CATEGORIES

Core Support

Designed to help you carry out fundamental daily activities/tasks, Core Support funding includes the four sub-categories:

  • Assistance with Daily Living

  • Transport

  • Consumables

  • Assistance with Social & Community Participation.

 

You have the control to manage and move your budget from one Core Support category to another.

Capital Support

This funding is for more significant, ‘one off’ items that you need to support you in your daily life. These supports are not flexible, so you cannot move the budget from one category to another. You must use the funds for the products that were agreed upon in your planning meeting. Generally, these items will cost more than $1500 and you will need a quote to be approved by the NDIA before you can purchase them.

Capacity-Building Support

This funding type supports you in building skills to become more independent. You cannot move budget from one category to another - you have to spend it on the agreed services or activities.
