What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme, known as the ‘NDIS’, is the once-in-a-generation national project improving the lives of thousands of Australians living with disability.

Taking a lifetime approach, the NDIS is designed to give people with disability the opportunity to build skills, participate in their community, and engage in employment. Instead of traditional state-based funding methods, the NDIS allocate individual funding so that people living with disability can choose how they access mainstream services, engage with community, build up informal networks, and receive their necessary supports.

How can you manage your NDIS funding?

Ranging in control and involvement, there are three different ways to manage your NDIS funding. As a participant, you have the choice of how to manage your funding.

Choose to have full control over how your funding is allocated. You will also have all the responsibilities of an employer, including bookkeeping, purchasing supports and more.

Plan Managed
Control where your funding goes but have the support of a third party (such as Made to Measure) who will manage the financial and administrative aspects of your plan on your behalf. This third party is called a “plan manager”

Otherwise known as NDIA-managed funding, agency-managed funding is where a plan will be organised for you. You will be able to choose from a range of NDIS providers. The NDIA will also manage your bookkeeping and funding records. While Bespoke Lifestyles does not offer agency-management, we do provide support coordination to help you put your plan into action.
