What are Capacity Building Supports and what can you claim under it?

Capacity Building Supports is a newer category of supports available through the NDIS. It is designed to help people with disability to build their capacity and skills, so that they can take control of their lives and participate more fully in the community. In this article, we will discuss what Capacity Building Supports are, and how you can claim them under the NDIS.

Capacity Building Supports can be used for a range of activities, including:

- Finding and keeping a job

- Developing life skills

- Accessing education and training

- Participating in the community

- Managing personal finances

- Maintaining health and wellbeing

To be eligible for Capacity Building Supports, you must be:

- Aged between 7 and 65 years

- An Australian citizen or permanent resident

- Living in Australia

- Have a disability that is likely to be permanent

- Require assistance with daily activities

If you meet the above criteria, you can access Capacity Building Supports through the NDIS. Capacity Building Supports are delivered through a range of providers, including disability services, community organisations and education providers.

There are two types of Capacity Building Supports:

- Core Capacity Building Supports: These supports are aimed at helping you to develop the skills and knowledge you need to live independently and participate fully in the community. They can include support with daily living tasks, personal care, communication and transport.

- Capacity Building Assistance: This type of support is aimed at helping you to access education, training and employment opportunities. It can include support with finding a job, developing work skills, and accessing education and training.
