Life Transition, Planning Incl. Mentoring Peer-Support and Individual Skill Development
Short-term or ongoing support to build your capacity to participate in your community and access programs or group activities of interest.
Skills Development and Training
Supports for participation in skills-based learning to develop independence in accessing their community.
This support budget enables you to build on your independence skills.
There are nine Capacity building support categories. You will not automatically receive funding for all nine but only for those that suit your needs and circumstances. The goals outlined in your National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plan determine which categories you receive funding for.
This is a fixed amount for a Support Coordinator to help you use your plan.
Increased Social & Community Participation
