Le Plan Manager provides a variety of services to NDIS participants who choose to engage a Plan Manager. These services assist participants in managing funding requirements and administration responsibilities, the planning and allocation of supports within allocated budgets with service providers, service monitoring and reporting, training and the delivery of supports to meet a participants’ needs.
A recent quarterly NDIA report identified that NDIS Plan utilisation is extremely low and that on average, “people use 63% of their Core funding, compared to 52% of their Capacity Building funding”*. Support Coordinators can assist you to utilise your plan to the maximum and achieve your goals!
The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) defines “coordination of supports as a capacity-building support arrangement” to provide “assistance to strengthen participant’s abilities to coordinate and implement supports and participate more fully in the community.”
Le Plan Manager has been proud to provide Support Coordination to achieve the following positive outcomes for our clients;
• assistance to increase people’s independence utilising Assistive Technology, including providing quotes and documentations to the NDIS to receive life improving equipment such as adaptive equipment or mobility aids such as adaptive cutlery, shower chairs or wheelchairs.
• in-home therapy sessions for clients unable to access the community.
• finding volunteer and employment opportunities in a range of workplaces.
• linking people to providers that offer exciting social and recreational activities.
Le Plan Manager recently assisted a young NDIS participant, Teodor, with the purchase of a modified bicycle from Freedom Wheels through his Assistive Technology NDIS budget. This bicycle will make a positive impact on Teodor’s daily life as he will be able to enjoy bicycle riding with family and friends, an important recreational activity for children of his age, therefore increasing his community participation and enjoyment of recreational activities.
Le Plan Manager is proud to support clients to reach their goals to enhance their lives and live life to the fullest! For more information, please call 1300 112 334.
