NDIS Information
What is the NDIS?

Disabled Australians under age 65 can now apply for the National Disability and Insurance Scheme (NDIS). It’s for those who have a permanent and significant disability. It serves to help them with funding for support and services to live their best lives.

The purpose of the NDIS is to inform, connect and support people with a disability. So their skills and independence improve over time. Disabilities include people with intellectual, physical, sensory, cognitive and psycho-social issues.

We offer a wide range of supports. These include:

  • help you reach your goals
  • support with daily life activities
  • growing lifeskills
  • have access to community connections (such as schools, doctors, libraries or social activities).
What supports does the NDIS fund?

Education, employment, social participation, independence health and wellbeing supports and services can be covered by your NDIS funding. As long as:

  • they relate to your disability
  • help you pursue your goals
  • increase your independence
  • and increase your connection to our community.

It can also have a direct or indirect benefit to your family or carer – such as counselling or respite help.

Are you eligible?

To find out if you are eligible for the NDIS, use this checklist via the NDIS website: https://www.ndis.gov.au/applying-access-ndis/am-i-eligible

How do I apply?

If you are eligble, according the NDIS Checklist (https://www.ndis.gov.au/applying-access-ndis/am-i-eligible) you will need to call 1800 800 110 and ask to make an Access Request. You will be required to fill in a form. This may require information from third parties – such as your doctor – to discover how your disability affects your day-to-day life.

There are also Local Area Co-ordinators on the Coffs Coast who can give you advice and assistance.

NDIS SERVICE PROVIDER

We are an approved NDIS Service Provider, so Newlake can help with your health needs, your home and your independence.

YOUR HEALTH

Newlake support staff can help with a variety of services to support your health. Such as medication assistance, monitoring and checks, therapeutic supports, nursing assessments, welfare checks and access to allied health.

Our services cover complex needs, behaviour issues, intellectual, physical and cognitive disability support. And we can provide service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so after-hours care is available

We also offer clinical nursing services, in your home. Health services include catheter care, blood pressure monitoring, bowel care, wound care, foot care, cognitive issues & support. And we can help to access medical supplies & equipment.

YOUR HOME

Newlake can help you reach your goals and maintain your independence. So, we offer regular or one-off cleaning and any sort of domestic assistance can be organised.

YOUR INDEPENDENCE

Newlake can assist you to stay independent for longer. Because we help keep or grow your connections with your local community.

Because getting out and about is so vital to pursuing a full life, our transportation services are all wheelchair accessible. So this can be utilised for getting to appointments or daily living (such as shopping) and social activities.

And our supports also include building and supporting lifeskills. These include meal preparation, showering, dressing, grooming, shopping and support with eating.

SUPPORT COORDINATION

As well as providing care, you can also choose Newlake as your NDIS Support Coordinator. This means we can help you plan access to the services and support you need. So, we help you achieve your goals, live more independently and gain lifeskills. And help you maintain as much access and connection to your local community as possible.

Newlake can help coordinate the supports your NDIS funding allow for. So, as the Coordinator of Supports, we’ll ensure you are optimising your plan, provide the integration and advocacy you need for services you require and ensure you’re getting the most out of your funded supports.

We can help you understand, negotiate and implement with suitable, local providers for the supports your NDIS package allows for. Because we enable connections to be made with providers. We help with bookings and setting up service agreements.

These coordination services are focussed on supporting you to build skills and to direct your life and allow you to plan ahead.

PLAN MANAGEMENT

As well as providing care in your home, you can also ask Newlake to do your NDIS Plan Management. This means we can manage the payment of providers, keep track of your funds and take care of the financial reporting for you.

You don’t need to choose Newlake to do both Coordination of Supports AND Plan Management and Care. You can choose to work with us in whichever way suits you. Because we are available to you to do either or both, as well as providing a wide variety of supports you need to live life your way.

As your NDIS Plan Manager we work with your NDIS Support Coordinator or other service providers. And we ensure you remain in control of your plan. So that you have a choice over who your providers are. Because we believe it is important to help you achieve your goals in the way that suits you and your lifestyle.
