NDIS core supports
Making every cent of your NDIS funding count
Your NDIS core support funding is only helpful to your situation if you know exactly how to maximise it. Think of it as mapping out your expenses well in advance, so you’re not just hoping it’ll all work out. Getting to grips with the different core support categories and knowing exactly where your funding is going can help keep you well-supported no matter what, no matter when.
Always stay updated on how your NDIS plan evolves
Keeping track of NDIS changes can sometimes feel like trying to grasp the wind – just when you’ve got your plan down pat and your budget sorted out, a curveball comes in the form of a new policy or guideline. You’re not alone if you find this frustrating. After all, it’s tough to stay on top of a game that’s always changing. The real trick is not just to keep up with these changes but to get ahead of them. With a registered NDIS provider like SHCS, staying in the know becomes less of a chore and more of a strategic advantage.
Break free from delays — less waiting, more living
When you’re relying on NDIS core support, the word ‘delay’ feels heavy. Each day of waiting nudges your life a bit off track, and it can feel as if your life is on pause while paperwork and processes grind slowly forward. This isn’t about cutting corners but understanding how the system works and where it can slow you down. The plan is to get your NDIS funding working without the unnecessary back-and-forth. It means less time spent waiting and more time enjoying the quality of life you deserve.

Questions around NDIS core supports
How do I know which NDIS core support categories I'm eligible for?
Eligibility is based on your personal needs and goals, as identified in your NDIS plan. Start by discussing your daily routine, challenges, and aspirations with your NDIS planner or a support coordinator. They’ll help you map out which categories align with your situation and assist you in accessing the appropriate supports.
What’s the difference between core supports and capacity building supports?
Core supports help with everyday activities and maintaining your independence. In contrast, capacity building supports are more about improving your skills and independence over time – think long-term goals and personal development.
What if my needs change after my plan is set?
No worries; your NDIS plan is flexible. If your needs shift, you can request a review to adjust your NDIS core support categories and funding.
Are there limits to how I can use my core support funding?
While NDIS core support funding is versatile, it’s meant for supports that align with your plan’s goals. So, there are some boundaries to make sure it’s used effectively.
Can I manage my own NDIS funding?
You bet. Self-management gives you control over your NDIS core support funding, but it also means you’ll handle the paperwork and financial tracking.
Can NDIS core support be managed by someone else on my behalf?
Certainly. If managing your core supports seems daunting, you can opt for plan management, where a plan manager takes care of the financial administration, or you could go with a support coordinator who helps you understand and make the best use of your support.
What happens if I don't use all my core support funding?
Any unused NDIS core support funding typically doesn’t roll over. It’s best to plan carefully to utilise all your allocated funds within the plan period.
Can core support funding be used for emergency expenses?
If you’re faced with an emergency, your NDIS core support funding has some flexibility. It’s designed to cover a range of daily activities and could possibly extend to unforeseen circumstances related to these. However, it’s best to discuss such instances with your NDIS planner or coordinator to ensure proper use of the funds within the guidelines.
How often can I have my core support needs reviewed?
Your NDIS plan is typically reviewed annually, but if there are significant changes in your circumstances or needs, you can request a review at any time. This helps to ensure that your core supports remain aligned with your goals and day-to-day requirements.
Can I choose any service provider for my NDIS core support?
Absolutely, you’re in the driving seat when it comes to picking service providers for your NDIS core supports. Just make sure they’re meeting your needs and are okay with the terms of NDIS funding. If you’re not satisfied with a provider or find someone better, you can switch providers. It’s all about what works best for you and allows you to get the most from your NDIS plan.
