Spectrum Space and NDIS
Spectrum Space is an approved NDIS service provider, providing services within the support category of Assistance with Social and Community Participation. NDIS provides a great opportunity which opens up increased accessibility to our services via the diverse funding options.
Spectrum Space is committed to helping our current and future participants through the changes to the disability sector. As an NDIS registered provider, Spectrum Space can support you at all stages of the development and implementation of your plan regarding our services. We encourage you to contact us if you have any questions or if you want help to include Spectrum Space in your plan.
In order to be eligible for the NDIS, you need to meet certain age, residence and disability requirements. The NDIS will also be available to people at different times depending on which local government area you live in.
To find out if you are eligible for the NDIS, head over to the NDIS eligibility checker.
Refer to the NDIS Roll-out schedule to check when the area you live in will become part of the NDIS.
Individualised planning is central to the NDIS. The person-centred approach provides individuals, and their supporters, with increased flexibility, choice and control over how they chose to live, now and into the future, as well as promoting the self-determination of unique goals.
Planning can be done in two ways:
- You can choose to be supported by a NDIS Local Coordinator in your planning. Everyone eligible for the NDIS has a Local Coordinator available to support them through the planning process.
- You can develop your own plan, also known as ‘self-managed’. Here is a guide to self-management.
