Exploration and Design supports are a great way to explore how you can combine paid supports we fund, with the support you get from friends, family or others. If this sounds like you, then Exploration and Design supports are more likely to suit you.
We don’t fund things in your individualised living option that your friends and family are reasonably expected to provide for you. Learn more about what’s reasonable to expect your friends, family or the community to provide.
To decide how many hours you need, we’ll look at:
- how much you already know about what support you’ll need
- what support you can get from informal supports like family and friends
- whether you already receive individualised living option support.
Before we add funding in your plan for either stage, we’ll make sure that supports, individually and as a package, meet the NDIS funding criteria.
