Once you become an NDIS participant , we go through the planning process together.
When we create your plan, we:
- set up a planning conversation, so we can get to know you and discuss your situation
- think about what supports community and other government services can provide to help you pursue your goals and live as independently as possible
- think about if you need any NDIS funded supports, and if they meet the NDIS funding criteria
- ask for further information about your support needs, if we need to
- develop and approve your plan
- send your plan to you.
You can ask other people to help you, if you want to. For example, you can have friends, family or an advocate join the planning conversation. They can also help you to make your own decisions about your plan.

We’ll start creating your plan within 21 days after you become an NDIS participant.
