When you first come to sit down with your National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) support planner, you will be asked whether or not you would like to manage your own support budgets. The planner will communicate the implications of this to you, but self-management basically means that you’ll have to pay any NDIS plan-related invoices yourself. You may also have to employ your own staff, or pay someone else to do this for you, something that you’ll probably never have had to do before.
If all of this already sounds like it could be stressful, and could potentially hinder the support services you receive, then you could enlist the help of a company like Kalinga Australia, who offer disability fund management in Canberra and throughout the entirety of the Australian Capital Territory. We can help you take care of the day to day financial side of the NDIS support plan, which is often more demanding than some might presume.
How can Kalinga Australia help?
If you entrust us with the financial obligations of your NDIS support plan (which we can also help you to plan), we can:
• Help you to find and engage with a service provider who meets your support requirements
• Make payments to your chosen provider, in a timely manner
• Retain all receipts and records for all the services you’ve enlisted as part of your NDIS plan
• Report to the National Disability Insurance Agency on your plan budgets, and how much has been spent
Of course, the decision on who to entrust with the financial side of your NDIS support plan is entirely up to you, and we'll liaise with you throughout, but we are here to help ease any worries or stresses that the prospect of managing a budget by yourself may bring.
All of our staff have been working with vulnerable and people with a disability in ACT for a number of years, and we place diversity, equality and respect above everything else.
If you would like to entrust a third party with the important task of managing your disability fund, then get in touch with Kalinga Australia today. We can answer any questions you have about the financial aspects of your NDIS plan, and we’d like to make the whole experience as stress-free as possible for you.
