In addition to Social and Community Participation, your Core Supports budget gives you access to a bunch more options designed to help you achieve your goals.
We tailor your supports so they truly work for you. After all, just like us, you are one of a kind!
What are Core Supports?
Under the NDIS, Core Supports help you with everyday activities, your current disability-related needs and to work towards your goals. Your Core Supports budget is the most flexible, and in most cases, you can use your funding across multiple support categories. There may be instances where you do not have flexibility in your funding, particularly for transport, but we can help you assess your plan for this purpose.
We provide services for most of the key support categories under your Core Support Budget:
Assistance with Daily Life
Assistance with Social & Community Participation
What’s Your Kind Of Support?
Daily Living/Personal Care
Essential Disability will assist you to live as independently as possible, whether you’re in your own home in one of our SIL houses or living elsewhere.
To be technical, assistance with Self Care support items are described as covering activities “Assisting with, and/or supervising, personal tasks of daily life to develop skills of the participant to live as autonomously as possible”. These supports are designed for and are provided individually to you.
We are also registered to provide high-intensity daily living supports thanks to our industry leading support staff and training. Support is considered a high intensity support if you require assistance from a support worker with additional qualifications and experience relevant to your more complex needs.
Examples of more complex needs:
Challenging behaviours requiring intensive behaviour support
Continual active support due to high medical needs (such as unstable seizure activity or respiratory support).
