How the planning process works

Your Personalised NDIS Plan

The NDIS has been meticulously structured to deliver a more individual-focused modality in addressing the needs of people with disabilities. Its core objective is to promote empowerment among individuals with disabilities, by endowing them with the freedom of choice and enhanced control over their lives. The operational paradigm of the NDIS is composed of a sequence of procedural steps, each contributing to its holistic functionality. The system is fundamentally categorized into five integral components:

This initial phase involves meeting with an NDIS planner or Local Area Coordinator (LAC) to discuss your goals, aspirations, and support requirements. Together, you will create a personalized plan that outlines the support and services you need to achieve your objectives.


During this stage, a thorough assessment will determine your eligibility for the NDIS. This may involve gathering information from healthcare professionals, therapists, and other relevant sources to ascertain the impact of your disability on your daily life and functional capacity.


Once your plan is approved, you will receive funding from the NDIS to access the supports outlined in your plan. This funding is allocated based on your individual needs, goals, and the reasonable and necessary support required to enhance your independence and participation in the community.

Service Delivery

With your approved plan and allocated funding, you can access the services and supports identified in your NDIS plan. This may include therapies, assistive technology, personal care, or other supports tailored to your unique requirements. You can choose providers and manage your support according to your preferences.

Plan Reviews

Regular plan reviews are conducted to ensure your supports are meeting your needs effectively. These reviews allow for adjustments to your plan, ensuring it remains aligned with your evolving goals and requirements. During the review, you can discuss any changes or updates to your circumstances and goals.

Understand the NDIS


The NDIS goes beyond mere service access; it revolutionises lives by placing choice and control firmly in the hands of individuals.

By embracing a person-centric approach, the NDIS recognises that each individual’s aspirations and capabilities are distinct.

Through its empowering principles, the NDIS strives to create a more inclusive and equitable future for all.
