Funded Activities by NDIS
The NDIS can help pay support funding for participants that include daily personal activities and transport to enable participation in community, social and daily life activities. Your NDIS plan likely consists of two types of community participation funding, them being core and capacity building funding.
The core supports funding mostly covers the support, individuals need, in order to meet their goals and dreams. Core support helps these individuals by helping them take part in a community or going to social/recreational events. These events often take place in a centre or a community setting. Some examples for core supports are:
- Encouraging individuals to attend development courses
- Supporting you to join a social group
- Helping them taking an outing, going on a vacation or encouraging them to go on a holiday camp
- Supporting them to go see a movie or theatre
- Encouraging them to start exercising more or joining a sporting club
Capacity Building Supports
Capacity building support, unlike core support, funds for tuition fees, art/skill classes, coaching for support and activities like such in order to build the individual’s independence and help them learn new skills. It should also be noted that as with many NDIS supports, it’s important that the support the individual wants is reasonable and necessary. So it’s important to talk with your NDIS provider, or you can call and ask us!
