At United Disability Care we have a range of services and supports that are available under the NDIS framework. Our experienced staff understand the new NDIS government scheme that has been designed to provide you with choice and support. At United Disability Care, we believe that you should only use a Service Provider that provide you the best support – and we hope that you choose us.
Your NDIS First Plan is the start of a lifelong relationship with the NDIA. Your NDIS Planner will be initially focused on continuity of your existing support when transitioning to the scheme. With thousands of people with disability transitioning to the NDIS, the First Plan aids in the simplification of the transition and has been designed to allow swift entry into the scheme. Your First Plan will be finalised after your Planning Meeting.
The implementation of the First Plan, allows Participants adequate time to assess their needs, develop goals and explore the available options for their next plan. Your next plan may include additional supports that provide you the opportunity to explore options to get involved in your local community such as sports clubs and community groups.
Once your plan is approved and you receive your funding, all previous funding for your disability supports will be stopped effective immediately. Therefore, to ensure your existing services continue as per normal, it’s important to let United Disability Care know that your plan has been approved as soon as you receive it.
Depending on your situation there are a range of people who can help you implement your plan and support you to start receiving supports. You can start your plan on your own if you are self-managed or with the support of a United Disability Care Support Coordinator.
