What Does an NDIS Plan Look Like?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides individuals with the support and funds for their personal goals and requirements of their disabilities. For this reason, all NDIS plans vary for each individual, particularly with how they will look and what they cover. In this post, we hope to outline what to expect and what your plan might include.

Each and every NDIS plan varies to suit the preferences and needs of the individual, but all plans will cover and include your personal situation, goals, supports and designated funding. Below is an outline of what your NDIS plan may include.

With all of this said, it might be beneficial for you to understand what your plan may include or look like. Typically, an NDIS plan is broken down into 3 parts; About Me, My Goals and My Supports. As well as this, your plan will show:

  • Your name
  • NDIS number
  • Contact details for the NDIS
  • Plan start date and review date

Section 1: About Me

In this section, it will show a summary of you and your situation, such as:

  • Your birthdate
  • Contact details
  • About you and your family (e.g. where you live, your day to day activities and hobbies)
  • If you have any formal or informal supports (e.g. your parents or a companion)
  • Your services and your involvement in your community

Section 2: My Goals

In this part of your NDIS plan, you will outline what you want to achieve. These are often broken down into short-term, mid- and long-term goals. Your goals might be something like gaining more independence in your day-to-day activities or learning how to drive a car. This section should breakdown how you want to achieve this goal and how you can be supported in doing so.

Section 3: My Supports

Section 3 of your NDIS plan will list the supports and services that will assist you in working towards your goals, including those provided to you through the NDIS.

Listed first will be how you will manage your NDIS funding, which will be further detailed with your funding in the following pages. You can manage your NDIS funding through self-management, plan management and NDIA management.

The types of supports you will receive will be listed from informal supports (such as from your family and friends) followed by supports you may receive from service providers such as government services, schools and health providers.

After a comprehensive list of your funded supports and a breakdown of the financial information, including budget and quotes, the report will conclude with further contact information about your NDIS contacts, where to find more information and when your next review date is booked in for.
