The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) may fund your services and supports, but these are unlikely to be the only funded services you can access. You can get state or even council funding for some of the things you do, such as access transport to attend appointments.
The NDIS also has a scheme to help you access transportation.
It’s good to keep track of what services you can access as a member of the community.
Sometimes your university or education service provider might have schemes to help out.
Other times you might rely on a family member or friend.
Remember, the NDIS is designed to help you live a full life, but it’s not the only support scheme you can access.
If you’re designing an NDIS plan or updating the one you have, remember to take into account the support you can access from other places.
If you or your supporters have any queries about the NDIS, you can call People with Disability Australia's (PWDA's) Information, Intake and Referral Service on 1800 843 929.
