Quick summary: Your plan may need to be changed for many reasons. If your situation changes, your disability support needs may change. You might need more supports, less supports or different supports. There are different ways we can change your plan. In certain situations, we might be able to vary your current plan. If major changes are required, we’ll complete a plan reassessment, and you’ll get a new plan. We used to call this a plan review.
We’ll check in with you during your plan to see if you need any changes to your plan. We’ll talk with you about your situation and look at any information you have given us to work out if a change is needed. If it is, we’ll then decide what type of change we need to do. You can ask us for a change to your plan at any time and we can decide to do a change to your plan at any time. A change to your plan isn’t used to review a decision we have already made.
We’ll work with you to complete the change to your plan. We’ll talk with you about your situation to work out what change is needed. We will then either update your plan or create a new plan. We still need to follow the laws for the NDIS that apply when making a change to your plan. For example, any changes to the reasonable and necessary supports in your plan must meet the NDIS funding criteria.
When we say 'your plan' we mean your NDIS plan. If you are looking for information about community connections, go to Our Guideline – Community connections.
