Participant Pathway: Your guide to being an NDIS Participant
Tandem is hearing that Mental Health Carers have difficulties understanding NDIS plans and indentifying a person to help their loved ones put the plan into action. NDIA has released new factsheets to help Mental Health Carers with the steps to take to start an NDIS plan.
Starting your plan will give an overview of what to do.
Starting your plan with a Support Coordinator helps understand how a support coordinator can help.
Starting your plan with a Local Area Coordinator helps understand how an LAC can help start the plan.
Starting my plan as an NDIS self-managed participant helps understand the steps if the person you care for is managing their own plan.
There is also a factsheet, Accessing supports for my child, which provides information about Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI). You can find all of the factsheets on the NDIS website.
Some NDIS participants that have scheduled plan reviews coming up in November will have their plans extended. Learn more about plan extensions on the NDIA website.
You can go to the NDIS webpage that lists all of their factsheets on one page. It also has an events section where you can see what’s on in your area.
