Don't get overwhelmed by the NDIS

We know how confusing and frustrating the NDIS can be. It can take forever to go through all the steps of planning, getting your approvals and finding the right service provider.

You have goals you want to achieve but you’re lost in the system and feel like giving up.

It doesn’t have to be this way. 

You don’t have to give up hope. We can help you access the right support when you need it so you can secure your independence and enjoy living life.

Get answers to the top questions participants and caregivers have before engaging with the NDIS and working with Hands On People.

Here at Hands On People, we are committed to making positive changes to the lives of our participants. We endeavour to deliver the best support to fulfill the needs of those in our community living with a disability.

  • Care Service
  • Accommodation
  • Community Nursing
  • High Intensitive Care Unit
  • Community Access
  • Activities of Daily Living (ADL)
  • Transportation

The support and services covered by NDIS will be:

1. Core: Assistance with daily living activities/consumables/transport/community participation.

2. Capital - Investment supports such as equipment, vehicle modifications, funds for capital costs.

3. Capacity Building - Any support that assists in developing independence and skills such as personal care activities, community participation, assessments, therapeutic supports, etc.

Any person with an NDIS plan can approach Hands On People for receiving our services. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an Australia-wide, government funded scheme that delivers supports and services to people with disability.

To be eligible for the NDIS, you need to comply with a number of conditions.

  • Location - You need to live in an area where the scheme is already rolled out.
  • Age - You must be under 65 years at the time of your application.
  • Residency - You’ll be an Australian citizen or hold a permanent visa or a Protected Special Category visa.
  • Disability - You must have a permanent disability that significantly affects how you can communicate, move, care for yourself, or manage your life.
  • Early Intervention - You might be eligible if early intervention would substantially improve your functioning, or delay or decrease a decline in functioning, for you or your child.

If you are still unsure whether you are eligible for the NDIS, feel free to contact our friendly support staff who will point you in the right direction.

The NDIS will only fund for supports that are related to your disability. It won't cover the day-to-day living cost, medication or duplicate other supports that you are receiving already.

A Service Agreement is a legal agreement between you and Hands On People that specifies the support that will be provided as per your NDIS plan. It explains how and when the support will be provided and the cost that will incur.

Our team understand the NDIS inside and out so if the legal jargon gets a bit much feel free to contact us. 

You are able to make the choice - you can manage your plan or request for a support coordinator to coordinate the supports as per your plan on behalf of you.

If you are still unsure our staff can help suggest what option may suit your needs. 

Our primary services operate out of our two main office locations - Darwin & Alice Springs.

However, some of our services are available in various locations as per participant's request. For example we offer  Return to Country transportation or short term Community Care options. 

To talk more about what services you require and specific locations contact us today.

We’re with you on your NDIS journey

We started Hands On People because we believed we could do better for Territorians with a physical, intellectual or psychosocial disability. We could see how challenging it was for people just like you to get the right advice and support to make the most of your NDIS Plan. It should be easy to access the help you need so you can live an independent and meaningful life. 

Our team have worked in health and disability services for more than 10 years and know exactly how the NDIS works. It might seem confusing and scary, but we’re experienced in navigating the system and linking up participants with the right supports. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach.

 We work closely with you to develop your capacity to achieve your goals and be an active part of your community.

We’re committed to getting the best out of the NDIS for you. Book your free NDIS pre-planning session and let us help you.
