Support coordination line items claimable under a participant’s Core budget will continue until 31 March 2021. Beyond this date, support coordination will continue to be available to all participants who have a reasonable and necessary need for it and can be claimed from their Capacity Building budget.
The NDIA has today announced the successful organisations that will make up the Independent Assessment Panel, to deliver free assessments for NDIS applicants and participants.
The NDIA is not cutting funding for support coordination, and it is incorrect to say funding is no longer available for support coordinators.
Some temporary COVID-19 measures will end on 28 February 2021, while some supports have been extended nationally until 30 June 2021 to help safely deliver supports and services in a COVID normal situation.
Please be advised of an upcoming outage to the participant and provider myplace portals. These systems will not be available during the outage period.
New data has revealed how the NDIS continued to support more Australians during 2020—a year full of unprecedented challenges from the devastating bushfires in January through to the COVID-19 pandemic.
