Registered NDIS Provider 4050028371
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides support for people who are living with disability. It is a whole life approach designed to provide the right support to each person's needs and goals. The NDIS provides assistance with reasonable and necessary support for Australians with a permanent and significant disability. Assistance from the NDIS is not means tested and has no impact on income support such as the Disability Support Pension and Carers Allowance.
Assistance with the cost of preparation and delivery of meals
This support should be discussed in your Planning meeting and identified as part of a goal. It is preferable to take a quote with you in order to allow adequate funding in your Core Supports. We can provide a quote for you.
Supports are related to a person's disability, assisting them to live comfortably and achieve their goals.You have choice and control in the delivery of your supports - you choose your Provider.Delivered meals come under Core Supports - Assistance with Daily Activities.
Participants who have core support funding specified for meal preparation and delivery can use this support. The line item is 01_023_0120_1_1. In some Plans, meal preparation and delivery may show as a quote required/stated support using the line item 01_022_0120_1_1 which requires an approved quote.
Participants who have funding for Support Workers to undertake shopping and meal preparation may use this funding to claim meal preparation and delivery as an alternative for short periods in response to short term disruptions (for example, if the Participant has to isolate).
