A complete list of disability supports funded by the NDIS and what they mean
The National Disability Insurance Scheme is one of the most important social programs running in the country today. The main reason why it is so impactful in the lives of millions of Australians is because of the disability supports funded by the program.
Disability supports funded by the NDIS aims to give NDIS participants the best possible chance at independent living. Rather than offering medical care, the supports are designed to assist participants as they find their own sense of independence.
In this article, we’ll take a look at the different kinds of disability supports outlined by the NDIS, give you some information about how to apply for the NDIS, and give you some insight as to how funding works in the scheme.

As a highly regarded NDIS support provider, we can assist you as you navigate the scheme, delivering NDIS supports that foster your own version of living independently. If you have any questions about the information contained within this article, we’d be happy to talk to you about it.
List of disability supports funded by the NDIS
NDIS Home Care Services
Through the NDIS, participants can access home care services to help with basic household tasks, improve daily routines, and assist with access to the wider community. These supports are delivered in the comfort of one’s own home, allowing participants to improve their lifestyle.
Respite & Short Term Accommodation and Assistance
Sometimes, family and regular carers need a break. Short-term support can give you the same supports in accommodation that rivals your own home for comfort. Accommodation assistance is all about encouraging normalcy for brief transitional periods.
NDIS School Holiday Activities
Children with disabilities are entitled to the same level of support as adults. Parents can now access qualified care for their children over the school holidays, allowing them to enjoy a range of fun activities, while helping them develop empathy and their own sense of responsibility.
NDIS Assist With Life Stage Transitions
Transitioning to the next stage of life is always a massive undertaking. Whether you are starting work or school, moving home, or transitioning to care-focussed accommodation, the NDIS can fund assistance that can help you manage the transition while maintaining your independence.
NDIS Community Nursing Care
Community nursing care can assist NDIS participants as they access better nursing care solutions, whether at home or in the community. Program providers can put participants in touch with some of the best allied health professionals in the area, ensuring that their needs are met, whether complex or standard.
NDIS Group Activities
Having a disability shouldn’t limit your ability to develop skills and form relationships. Group activities in the NDIS encourage both of these things, allowing participants to grow as active and valued members of their community.

To keep a healthy body and healthy mind, everyone needs to exercise. Exercise physiology through the NDIS can help you discover new ways of being active that are both fun and within your ability. Through the program, you’ll find new active passions in a range of supports and activities.
