Once a person is found eligible for the NDIS, information from their independent assessment will be used to develop a personalised budget.
Participants will receive a draft plan (including a draft budget), before their planning meeting. The planning meeting will remain to talk more specifically about the person, finalise the personalised budget, and focus on supporting participants to use their NDIS plan to pursue their goals.
A personalised budget will be included in a participant’s NDIS plan, which will be far more flexible.
Plans will be set up for longer periods of time, and regular check-ins will be scheduled to make sure plans still suit participant’s needs.
Participants will need to complete a new independent assessment from time-to-time, and at different stages of their lives, to make sure they continue to get the right funding in their NDIS plans.
