What is a Support budget? 

Three types of support budgets may be funded in your NDIS plan: 

1. Core Supports budget 
The basic things you need to live in daily life. This helps you with everyday activities, your current disability-related needs, and to work towards your goals. Your Core Supports budget is the most flexible, and in most cases, you can use your funding across any of the following four support categories.

  • Assistance with daily living, transport allowance, and consumables (for example nutritional products, continence products, and dressing aids).
  • Assistance in daily living support workers, respite care, gardening.
  • Participation – help with community access, activities and recreation, and community participation ( eg tickets to concerts or sporting events). 
  • 2. Capital Support 
  • Capital Supports include higher cost pieces of assistive technology, equipment, home or vehicle modifications, and funding for one-off purchases you may need (including Specialist Disability Accommodation).
  • Assistive technology, for example, wheelchairs, prosthetics 
  • Home modification – any changes needed in your home to enable independent living, for example, rails, ramps, and doorways. 
  • 3. Capacity Building Support 
  • Capacity building Supports help build your independence and skills to help you pursue your goals. 
  • Support coordination for providers
  • Improved Living arrangements
  • Increased Social & Community participation
