Plan flexibility and budget planning

NDIS participants want to have more choice and control over their lives supported by plans and budgets that meet their needs, and help them pursue their goals in a way that best suits them.  The current approach to building NDIS plans is too hard, decisions are inconsistent and there needs to be more flexibility to make it better. The NDIA is proposing changes in how they build budgets that will address these issues.

to explain the proposed Personalised Budget model in more detail, the NDIA has released a series of information papers including:

  1. Personalised Budgets – technical information paper
  2. Personalised Budgets – information paper for participants, their families and carers
  3. Easy Read Guide – A new way to work out how much funding you receive in your NDIS plan
  4. Participant planning maps
