Getting ready for your plan


What is an Individualised Support Plan (NDIS Plan)?

Once you are eligible to participate in the NDIS, you can start the planning and assessment process.

The planning and assessment process is focused on you as the participant. It is the start of a lifelong relationship between you and the NDIS. It uses goal-based planning. It also aims to maximise your choices and independence.


How do I get ready for my first NDIS Plan?

To start the process, it is worth thinking about what your needs, goals and current support are. It is a good idea to speak with your current providers to understand what services you currently receive and what services you might want to receive in the future.

The NDIS website has a "Getting Plan Ready" form you can complete or a couple of videos you can watch that will help you learn more about developing your plan.

An NDIA representative will work with you to develop your NDIS Plan.

Your first plan will be in place for 12 months and may include similar supports and services you currently receive.

Once the plan is in place you will be able to think about how those supports are working for you and if there are other supports which may help you achieve your goals. Any changes can be discussed with the NDIA representative during the annual review process.
