Understanding Your NDIS Funding

The NDIS provides individualized support packages for people with significant disabilities. It’s vital to comprehend the three main types of funding: Core, Capacity Building, and Capital Supports. Each category addresses different needs, from daily activities and community participation to developing skills and purchasing assistive technologies.


Choosing the Right Management Option

Your NDIS plan can be managed in various ways: self-management, plan management, or agency management. EEA Advisory can help you decide which option aligns best with your level of comfort and desire for control over the funding. Each method has its advantages, whether it’s independence in decision-making or relying on professional guidance.


Effective Budgeting and Expense Tracking

An essential aspect of NDIS management is budgeting and monitoring expenditures. Creating a budget helps you allocate funds effectively and prioritize needs. Tools like Mint or YNAB can be useful for tracking expenses, ensuring you stay within your NDIS plan’s limits.


Engaging Suitable Service Providers

Finding the right service providers is crucial. Use resources like the NDIS Provider Finder and consider factors like experience, qualifications, and cultural compatibility. Establish clear service agreements to outline roles, responsibilities, and expectations.


Collaborating with Your Support Coordinator or Plan Manager

A smooth NDIS journey often involves working closely with a support coordinator or plan manager. They can help align your goals with the plan and ensure appropriate supports are in place. Communication is key – don’t hesitate to address any concerns or adjustments needed.


Utilizing Informal Supports

Incorporating support from friends and family can enhance your NDIS experience. These informal supports can complement formal services, creating a comprehensive support network tailored to your needs.


Keeping Up-to-Date with NDIS Changes

The NDIS is continually evolving. Staying informed about updates ensures your plan remains effective and adaptive. EEA Advisory can provide current information and guidance on these changes.


Preparing for Plan Reviews

Regular reviews of your NDIS plan allow for adjustments and goal reassessment. Reflect on your achievements and consider any new objectives. EEA Advisory can assist in gathering necessary documentation for these reviews, ensuring a smooth process.



Effectively managing NDIS funding is about understanding its nuances, choosing the best management approach, budgeting wisely, engaging the right providers, and staying informed.
