NDIS Calculator Counts the Cost of Disability Support
Launched at the Nepean Disability Expo in Penrith on Friday 14th September, the NDIS Support Calculator is believed to be the first tool of its kind that helps to simplify the process of developing a funding package. It calculates the cost of a variety of support services across 15 different categories and generates a printable report that can be used in discussions with an NDIS planner.
Under the NDIS, participants are provided with funding that enables them to access support services tailored to help them achieve greater independence, community participation, employment and improved wellbeing. This could include assistance with daily activities, transport, domestic care, home modifications and therapeutic support.
The calculator was developed by Wentworth Healthcare, provider of the NBMPHN. It was originally designed for Support Facilitators delivering services through the Partners in Recovery program in the Nepean Blue Mountains region but it is relevant for people in New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory, Queensland and Victoria.
It can be used by current and potential NDIS participants, carers, allied health professionals and support facilitators working with NDIS participants.
As part of a twelve month trial, the online calculator has received widespread support from disability advocacy organisations such as Carers NSW, Disability Advocacy NSW and Wellways Australia as well as other Primary Health Networks (PHNs).
