Last month the NDIA announced an end to the COVID-19 measure which enabled NDIS participants to temporarily use their Core funds to access support coordination.

This temporary support measure will end on Wednesday 31 March 2021.

Participants with support coordination in their Capacity Building budget will continue to have access to this support. 

After 31 March 2021 you will not be able to use your Core budget to access support coordination.

If a participant’s circumstances have changed, they can ask for a plan review to have any reasonable and necessary supports included in their next plan.

If you have been using your Core supports budget to pay for support coordination, you will not be able to do this after 31 March 2021. You can still access funds for support coordination from your Capacity Building budget.

Your provider may need to update or cancel service bookings.

If you don’t have support coordination as a reasonable and necessary support in your Capacity Building budget and you think you need it, you should talk to your local area coordinator or early childhood early intervention partner.

For supports not included in a plan, special teams of planners are available to help make urgent changes to plans. Participants can phone 1800 800 110 for urgent assistance.
