What are Core Supports?

If you're new to the NDIS, you might be wondering what all of these different funding types and support categories mean. In this blog post, we'll break down Core Supports - what they are, and what kind of supports fall under this category. Keep in mind that every NDIS plan is different, so make sure to speak with your planner if you have any questions about your specific plan.

Core Supports are the basic services and supports that you need to live your daily life. They include things like personal care, housekeeping, gardening, meal preparation and transportation assistance, as well as assistive technology or therapy to help with a disability-related condition.

Under the Core Supports funding type in your NDIS plan, you may also have access to Capital Supports, which are one-time investments in things like assistive devices or home accessibility modifications. Capacity Building is another funding type that may be included in your plan, and it can cover supports and services to help you build skills and independence over time.

Whether you have a disability or not, Core Supports are an essential part of any plan to help you live your daily life. If you are looking for help understanding your NDIS plan and all of the different funding types included in it, talk to your provider, support coordinator or contact the NDIS directly for more information. With the right support and access to Core Supports, you can achieve your goals and live a full, independent life.
