Let’s talk about your goals

 

This week Brisbane North residents are learning more about the NDIS. There were some great questions at our info session in Northgate so thought we’d share some with you. 

 

Q. My son received his NDIS plan in July. His plan includes funding for Support Coordination. Does Centacare provide support coordination services?

Centacare Choices has a team of experienced Support Coordinators available to assist you implement your plan. Call Centacare Choices on 1300 968 724 for more information.

Q. Our daughter hasn’t had her planning meeting yet. We are happy with her existing supports and want these to stay as they are. We are worried though that we will be required to manage the financial side of her NDIS funding.

To get the most from you plan, we suggest you complete the pre planning booklet and include your daughter’s current supports. Take your completed pre planning booklet to the planning meeting.   When it comes to managing the funding, the NDIA will explain your options on how the plan can be managed. This may include funding to pay for a plan manager or opting for the plan to be managed by the NDIA.

Q. Our son doesn’t want to attend his planning meeting. Is it essential that he attend?

This is quite a common situation so rest assured, you are not alone. Explain your situation to the NDIA when they call to arrange his planning meeting and they will help you work out your options.
