WHAT ARE REASONABLE AND NECESSARY SUPPORTS

The NDIS funds reasonable and necessary supports that help you achieve your goals and reach your greatest potential.

What comes under the reasonable and necessary banner?

  • develop your capacity to actively take part in the community.

Plans developed must:

  • Not include day-to-day living costs that are not related to a participant’s disability support needs
  • Represent value for money
  • Be likely to be effective and beneficial to the participant, and
  • Take into account informal supports given to participants by families, carers, networks, and the community.

We do this by:
